Protect Lelu Island by Donating to Legal Fund!

There has never been a greater threat to Skeena salmon than the Pacific Northwest LNG project proposed for Lelu Island. Millions of juvenile salmon use the Skeena Estuary as a stopover on their way to the Pacific Ocean, articulated in a new study by SFU professor Dr. Jonathan Moore.

In October SkeenaWild, the Gitanyow First Nation and the Gitwilgoots Tribe all launched judicial reviews of the Liberals' approval of the project. But legal challenges are expensive and we can't do it alone, we need your help! 

The funds raised will support the legal challenges to secure a healthy future of the Skeena Estuary and wild salmon.

Please donate through our GoFundMe campaign.
