Help Wild Trout Survive

A brook trout cannot survive in warm streams. Too often these cold-water dependent fish have no way to escape when their watery habitat becomes too hot to survive.

Brook trout were once widespread throughout the East and abundant for fishing. But today, wild populations of these beautiful fish have vanished from half of their historical range. Now, climate change is making it more and more difficult for brook trout to survive outside of cooler high-elevation areas.

The Environmental Protection Agency is acting now to limit carbon pollution from existing coal-fired power plants that contribute to climate change, but it is coming under assault from polluter-funded attack groups. The EPA needs to hear from you!

Please don’t let fishing for wild trout become just a memory — take action today in support of carbon pollution limits.
