February 2017

Skeena Wild is hard at work ensuring we all have a healthy watershed to live, play, and harvest delicious wild salmon.

Here are a few things we've been working on this past month and what to expect as we get closer to spring fishing season!

Let’s Pull Together to protect Wild Salmon!

RAVEN (Respecting Aboriginal Values & Environmental Needs) has launched a new campaign to support Indigenous legal challenges of Petronas’ LNG plant on Lelu Island.
Four Aboriginal groups along the Skeena and Nass Rivers are challenging the proposed Petronas LNG facility in court. Their case is strong — but they need support to have the best possible legal defence as they take on giants of industry and government.

RAVEN is proud to stand with the Tsimshian tribe of Gitwilgyoots, the Gitanyow Hereditary Chiefs, the Gitxan House of Luutkudziiwus, and the Gitxan House of Gwininitxw to stop Petronas’ LNG pipeline and export terminal in the pristine salmon habitats that have sustained indigenous families for millennia.

Discourse Media Investigations

Discourse Media continues its investigation of Indigenous issues and how government exchanges money for signatures to get LNG pipelines approved. 

Read the full story here on how government money ended up in the hands of Gitxsan chiefs.



Negotiations continue with the Pacific Salmon Commission

The Pacific Salmon Commission is a cross boundary organization that administers the Pacific Salmon Treaty.

SkeenaWild Executive Director, Greg Knox, sits on the northern panel of experts and is working with the commission to enhance the sustainability of pacific salmon stocks especially those within the Skeena Region. 

For more information on how SkeenaWild is working with fisheries in Alaska and beyond to protect wild salmon, visit the PSC website here.

"Salmon have sustained us for thousands of years, my family and ancestors have harvested and preserved salmon for hundreds…if not thousands of years. Salmon runs through my veins." - Ken Campbell
