Protecting Endangered Atlantic Salmon from the Harmful Impacts of Dams in Maine

The Clinic has been working with the Center for Biological Diversity to explore options for protecting endangered Atlantic Salmon from the devastating effect of dams in Maine. Student clinicians have obtained and are in the process of reviewing voluminous public records from federal and state agencies concerning Atlantic salmon and dams in Maine. In addition, Clinic and CBD representatives have met with officials at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to discuss the new processes underway for bringing dam owners into compliance with the requirements of the Endangered Species Act.
