Idaho’s salmon and steelhead are on the brink of extinction, and it is time for Idaho to reclaim leadership and be a voice for our dying fish. This January, along with a variety of stakeholders, IRU aims to drop 5,000 postcards on governor elect Brad Little’s desk as a resounding statement from voters that our native species matter to us and we demand that Idaho take back leadership for our salmon and steelhead policy. Use your voice now.
On the banks of Payette Lake, I stood beside land owners, business owners, anglers, kayakers, hunters, boaters, teachers, tribal members and my 5-month old nephew. Myself, and over 200 people on September 1, gathered for the Rally for the South Fork Salmon. We raised our proud, clear voices in uneasy opposition for the Midas Gold Stibnite Project. We spoke our truths, truths which haven’t been tarnished by the Midas dollar.
