Right now, the Northwest's orcas and salmon are facing a massive new threat.
Currently there are proposals to send as much as 150 million tons of coal each year on trains, barges, and supertankers through the Pacific Northwest to foreign markets.
These activities would spew toxic coal pollution and diesel emissions that would contaminate the Northwest waterways that orcas and salmon depend on.
Thanks to pressure from people like you, three of the originally six proposed coal export terminals in the Pacific Northwest are now either paused or completely off the table!
But we still need to stop the fastest moving coal export terminal proposed for the shoreline of the Columbia River in Longview, Washington, and keep up momentum to end all proposed terminals.
Please edit and send a message to federal and state agencies urging them to stop the coal export terminal at Longview and all remaining proposed terminals.
Endangered orca whales in the Pacific Northwest are currently at risk because of habitat loss, toxic water pollution, and declining salmon runs the orca depend on as their source of food.
Now, the Northwest's orcas and salmon are facing a massive new threat.
Please edit and send a message to federal and state agencies urging them to stop the latest proposed coal export terminal at Longview and all remaining proposed terminals.
