A Northwest Opportunity: Restore Salmon & Invest In Communities
Stopping salmon extinction
For more than two decades, one of the most contentious issues in the Northwest has been how to manage the four federally-owned hydropower dams on the lower Snake River and restore abundant salmon and steelhead runs that have been decimated by these dams. This issue has largely been driven by a series of court cases and unsuccessful efforts to comply with the Endangered Species Act by the federal agencies that own and operate these dams, as well as the federal government’s failure to uphold the commitments made to Northwest tribes through legally-binding treaty agreements.
Building a coalition to build support for a comprehensive solution
Driven by a new opportunity for political leadership to bring people across the region together to create a comprehensive lower Snake River dams solution, the Water Foundation engaged Pyramid to help a coalition of businesses, individuals, and organizations shape and implement a long-term, integrated campaign strategy and work plan. Pyramid is supporting as a strategic partner, facilitating coalition-wide collaboration, leading all communications efforts, building relationships, and always seeking opportunities to maximize impact.
