Restoration is Possible!
No matter how hopeless the plight of the salmon might seem, scientists remain confident that salmon can be restored. Here's why:
High elevation streams, like those in Idaho's mountains, are in good conditions and offer excellent salmon habitat. More than half of the existing "salmon strongholds" are in protected areas that are likely to remain healthy. Most of the people living in the Pacific Northwest want salmon restored and are willing to help achieve this goal. Biologists, politicians, tribes, and land managers are working together to address salmon restoration at the regional level.
