Save Lelu Island and Skeena salmon from LNG


Save Lelu Island and Skeena salmon from LNG: - [] - The health and abundance of wild salmon depend on intact fresh and saltwater habitats.

The proposed Petronas Pacific NorthWest LNG development on Lelu Island, on the estuary of the Skeena River, would interfere with the delicate balance of Flora Bank and the natural processes that hold it in place. Flora Bank has been identified as critical to the health and abundance of Skeena salmon.

A study by the federal government in 1973, as well as recent science, confirms that altering or destroying these habitats will significantly damage the abundance and health of Skeena salmon.

This site was selected for industrial development without consultation with First Nations and Skeena communities.

We, the undersigned, share a deep and abiding interest in the continued health and abundance of wild Skeena salmon. Therefore, we declare the proposed Pacific NorthWest LNG project cannot proceed.
