There’s a lot been happening behind the scenes with The Breach. And we are about to launch a major new endeavor for a new version of the film update the story and highlight the perilous times we are in for wild salmon.
The timing couldn’t be more critical.
As you likely know, last Friday, May 12, It was announced that President Trump and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt struck a backroom deal with a foreign mining company that wants to build an open pit mine near some of our nation’s most precious waters.
This announcement could remove proposed protections for Bristol Bay, Alaska – the most featured segment for wild salmon in The Breach. Bristol Bay provides 14,000 American jobs and 1.5 billion dollars to the American economy with the 30 – 60 million wild sockeye salmon that return there each summer.
Please – take 3 minutes to of your day and call EPA Administrator, Scott Pruitt to tell him compromising an irreplaceable ecosystem, our food supply, the last greatest sockeye salmon run on the earth and our grandchildren’s future is unnaceptable.
The Office of Scott Pruitt: 202.564.4700

Lastly, please spread the word and pass this along. Our wild salmon depend on us.
PS – A significant announcement about a new version of The Breach coming soon.
