Wild for Salmon donates to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation!
Posted by : Wild For Salmon /
As we celebrate Earth Day, Wild for Salmon considers its relationship with its own local watershed in central Pennsylvania and with Bristol Bay, which provides for our family and our business. Please join us today in celebrating both bays with a Wild for Salmon purchase that donates back to the Chesapeake Bay and a comment that supports the protection of Bristol Bay, Alaska.
As is evidenced by the amazing and substantial conservation efforts made by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, our nation’s water needs protecting. In Alaska’s Bristol Bay, where the Kurian’s fish aboard the F/V Ava Jane, an ongoing fight to protect this ecosystem and its fishery is heating up. A foreign-owned mining company is pushing forward a proposal for North America’s largest open-pit mine. The project’s proposal threatens the salmon on which the region, and our business, thrives.
This April, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is collecting public comments as part of the Pebble Mine’s permitting process. Anyone can submit comments, so please consider weighing in and sharing why Bristol Bay’s salmon fishery matters to you and your concerns about the impacts that the proposed Pebble Mine could have on America’s future access to sustainable wild salmon.
We have chosen to partner with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation because it is our home watershed, but, more importantly, because we hope to inspire the Chesapeake's advocates and supporters to take note of Alaska's Bristol Bay and join us in hitching our wagons to clean water and clean eating everywhere.
Wild for Salmon is proud to partner with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation in celebration of Earth Day! 10% of each purchase made through May 31st will be donated to CBF who works to restore clean water throughout the six-state, 64,000 sq mile watershed. Wild for Salmon is passionate about clean water from the Chesapeake Bay to Alaska’s Bristol Bay!
Wild for Salmon will donate 10% of all sales from April 26 - May 31, 2018 to CBF with a minimum contribution of $2,500 and maximum contribution of $6,000.
