How do salmon declines affect coastal bears? How is the low abundance of chinook affecting resident killer whales? And how much salmon biomass is required to sustain terrestrial species?

These are questions many people are asking in light of the increasing number of salmon runs that fail to return as expected to fall spawning streams. 

Raincoast Conservation staff and scientists are addressing these issues as part of our Salmon for Wildlife Initiative.
