can we save the last 496




In Northern California, a species is teetering on the brink of extinction.

Magnificent coho salmon, animals connected to the iconic redwood forests that we all love, are in trouble.

The population of these fish has dropped by more than 90%. From 5,000 to less than 500.

Can you join us in the fight to protect these last 496 amazing fish by making a donation?

You might be thinking: aren’t these the turtle folks? I’ll let you in on a little secret. We’ve also been on the frontline of protecting Central California Coast coho salmon since 1997.

For more than twenty years, Turtle Island Restoration Network, with people like you by our side, has been leading the charge for coho salmon.

  • Hand-rescued more than 15,000 baby fish from creek beds that were drying up.
  • Secured more than $4,000,000 in public and private funds dedicated to restoring wildlife habitat in Northern California. So far we’ve restored more than 250,000 square feet of crucial creekside habitat.
  • Used litigation and advocacy to advance policies to deliver consistent protections for coho.

But the salmon need our help.

The federal government has designated these fish as one of the eight species most at risk of extinction in the near future.

But action by local officials in Northern California is lagging. We are seeing:

-Limited protections for sensitive habitats against development

-Attacks on a proposed wildlife conservation area

Make a gift today and help us reverse the population crash.
