Win Beer and Fishing Gear, When you Support Salmon
When you make a tax-deductible donation by December 31st, 2016 to the Pacific Salmon Foundation your donation will be matched! When you consider that at least 90 cents of every dollar donated goes directly into salmon projects - that's a good deal for salmon.
What's more - you'll be entered to win a reel, rod and tackle package donated by PEETZ Outdoors or a beer fridge stocked with PSF Lager! You get one entry for every $100 donated. First name drawn gets first choice. The reel is a PEETZ 5 Inch Mahogany & Brass Evolution Reel with one way drag. The engraved reel face is an original design by Jason Henry Hunt, called "Orca Pod", featuring six dorsal fins in a radial pattern. The reel is paired with a 9ft med/heavy trolling rod and a PEETZ West Coast tackle page. PSF Lager is brewed by Postmark Brewing with proceeds supporting salmon projects in B.C. and the Yukon. Your donation will support research and restoration efforts through the Salish Sea Marine Survival Project .
About 20 years ago, Coho, Chinook and Steelhead in the Strait of Georgia mysteriously declined by about 90%. This Project is the first comprehensive look at the Strait's ecosystem to figure out what caused the declines and how to fix it. And it engages 30 different partners each with their own network of expert scientists, special equipment, labs and volunteers. In-kind contributions from these partners mean that donors to the Project can expect 4:1 leverage for every dollar donated.
This year, thanks to donors some exciting findings have come to light! Read here about results from research into salmon farms, climate change, seal predation and more.
