Spectacular Time-Lapse Video of Historic Dam Removal

For 98 years, the 125-foot high Condit Dam in southeastern Washington State held back the White Salmon River, creating a serene lake, but choking off the waterway to salmon. Wednesday, in an historic effort, the dam was dramatically breached, and ecologists hope the increased flow of water will restore the waterway to fish and other aquatic organisms, as well as the birds and mammals that rely on them.


Progress is additionally being made on the removal of this dam, the Elwha dam in Olympic National Park. :)

Wolf hunting now legal in Montana and Idaho. Not easy to watch for enviros… But, the lawsuit is interesting.

Once again, humans refuse to learn from history— and nature loses out to human interest and profit.
Unbelievable.
