Founded in 1991, Save Our Wild Salmon (SOS) is a nationwide coalition of conservation organizations, commercial and sport fishing associations, businesses, river groups, and taxpayer advocates - all joined in a commitment to restore Pacific Northwest wild salmon and the communities that depend on them. We focus our efforts on the Columbia and Snake River Basins, where in the time of Lewis and Clark up to 16 million wild salmon returned each year. Today, as few as ten thousand salmon return home to the Snake River. Our current priority is an exciting national campaign to restore these endangered salmon and steelhead by partially removing four dams on the lower Snake River, which in turn will restore the Pacific Northwest's wild salmon and free-flowing rivers as vital economic engines for local communities.
