Wheat farmers fear extinction if Snake River dams are removed to help orcas | KUOW
In Western Washington, it could seem like a no-brainer: The orcas of the Salish Sea are hungry, because there are fewer and fewer of the salmon they depend on. Removing the four dams on eastern Washington’s Snake River would help the salmon that use the river to spawn — and thus the whales that eat the salmon. But the view from eastern Washington is different. Sam Wasser, professor of biology at the UW, is quoted.
