One of the last remaining wild runs for central California's coho salmon are in Marin County, but a move by the county's board of supervisors could mean extinction for Marin's salmon.
The supervisors are considering changes to the 6-year-old county conservation plan -- dangerous loopholes for development that would put salmon and other wildlife at risk.
The plan was created to help guide development while protecting Marin's wildlife and natural resources, but now -- to appease a small, well-heeled group of landowners -- the board is considering weakening the plan, to allow development along the creeks and rivers salmon depend on.
The Center for Biological Diversity is joining more than 20 organizations to urge Marin County to adopt a conservation plan that puts salmon first. We ran a full-page ad in the Marin Independent Journal calling on the supervisors to adopt stronger stream protections. But now we need your help.
Please take action now to tell the Marin County Board of Supervisors to save endangered coho salmon instead of rewriting the rules midstream.
