Students for the Salish Sea Trip to Protect Salmon From Natural Gas, Lelu Island BC, Summer 2017

The third largest salmon habitat in the world is at risk from a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) export facility on Lelu Island in Northern B.C.  Scientists say that if built, this export facility would obliterate vital salmon habitat in the Flora Banks and Skeena river, as well as increase tanker traffic in one of the world’s most pristine salmon-bearing estuaries.

With your help, a coordinated group of members from Students for the Salish Sea and the community in Bellingham, WA will travel to Northern B.C. this summer and join in the indigenous-led defense of Lelu Island. Help send these trained and welcomed allies to protect essential salmon habitat from extractive industry.

Please consider making a generous gift to support our cause
