April 26, 2022, DAMMED TO EXTINCTION 7PM Pacific
Please join Meaningful Movies Bellevue for an ONLINE screening of the 2019 documentary film Dammed to Extinction, followed by four amazing guest speakers who will address issues raised in the film. Get this must-see event on your calendar now! Dammed to Extinction features orca whale researcher Ken Balcomb, who has studied the Puget Sound Southern Resident Orca for over 40 years. Struggling to survive, the orcas rely on Chinook salmon for their existence. Yet salmon are close to extinction themselves because of a series of four dams on what was once the largest Chinook producing river on earth.
A broad and growing coalition of scientists, economists, conservationists, and citizens say removing these Lower Snake River fish killing dams is the best chance we have to bring abundant runs of salmon and the orca that rely on them.
Guest speakers include NWRAP Members:
Jim Waddell from Dam Sense (https://damsense.org/),
Tony Jones, power economist.
Scott Levy: Motivated into action by Lionel Boyer of Shoshone-Bannock Nation, Scott Levy began a news clipping styled website at www.bluefish.org in 1999, dedicated to gathering and sharing information regarding the plight of Idaho’s wild salmon and steelhead.
