‘Dam Nonsense’ Documentary Film Orca Project

We are asking for your help to expose the lies and hypocrisy responsible for the continual decline of salmon populations and the demise of the Southern Resident Orcas, a critically endangered species.

Science proves that the dams on the lower Snake River must be breached to save the salmon population and the Southern Resident Orcas who rely on them. Tribal treaties have been violated, environmental protections have been overlooked, power companies continue to lie and politicians spend billions to study the problem. It's time to hold them all to account!

Why $500,000?
Please don't let the large number frighten you. A premium, full-length film requires high production value. Mainstream corporate media is not involved so our voice is independent. We are also seeking funding from larger donors who will help us reach our goal. The Southern Resident Orcas are counting on us. Thanks to your generosity, we're going to find a way to make that happen. Thank you!
