URGENT APPEAL YOU CAN HELP, HELP, HELP AUBURN RAVINE SALMON!

FOR ANOTHER YEAR HUNDREDS OF SALMON WILL BE BLOCKED BY NEVADA IRRIGATION DISTRICT’S (NID’S) HEMPHILL DAM ON AUBURN RAVINE FROM REACHING SIX MILES OF PRIME SPAWNING GRAVELS UPSTREAM.
YOU CAN BECOME INVOLVED AND HELP SAVE SALMON BEFORE OCTOBER 15 WHEN THEY REACH THE HEMPHILL DAM.

EITHER EMAIL OR PHONE CHUCK BONHAM, DIRECTOR OF CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF FISH AND WILDLIFE, AND ASK HIM TO AUTHORIZE A SALMON TRANSPORT OVER HEMPHILL DAM BY SARSAS AND ITS PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATES, WHO WILL DIVERT SALMON INTO A PEN BELOW THE DAM AND THEN LIFT THEM IN A CLOTH SLING FOR THE 30 FEET HAND-CARRY OVER THE DAM THAT SHOULD TAKE LESS THAN A MINUTE WITH NO DANGER TO THE FISH, NO NETTING, NO INSERTING TELEMETRY METERS AND NO TRUCK RIDES LIKE WAS DONE ON BUTTE CREEK BY CDFW WITH A 100 % MORTALITY RATE .
SO FAR INCREDIBLY CDFW HAS REFUSED TO GIVE SARSAS AND ASSOCIATES THAT PERMISSION.
CALL DIRECTOR CHUCK BONHAM AT 1 916 653 7667 OR EMAIL HIM AT DIRECTOR@WILDLIFE.CA.GOV ASKING FOR THAT PERMISSION TO SARSAS AND ASSOCIATES.
REMEMBER MARGARET MEAD’S WORDS:
“NEVER DOUBT THAT A SMALL GROUP OF THOUGHTFUL, COMMITTED CITIZENS CAN CHANGE THE WORLD. INDEED, IT IS THE ONLY THING THAT EVER HAS.”
THEN BECOME A PART OF THE “SMALL GROUP OF THOUGHTFUL, COMMITTED CITIZENS” THAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD FOR OUR SALMON, AND IN THE COMMENT SECTION BELOW LET US KNOW YOU HAVE HELPED.
