The Double-crossed Cormorant

The US Army Corps of Engineers is planning to 'save endangered salmon' by shooting 16000 Double-Crested Cormorants on East Sand Island. This species of cormorant has already had a troubled history, having suffered at the hands of DDT once. While the actual causes of the endangerment of salmon are dams, over-fishing, introduction of invasive species and pollution, it is the cormorants that are being blamed in a misdirected conservation plan. The Double-crested Cormorant has by all means been double-crossed!

Participate in the Audubon Society's signature campaign to stop the slaughter.
