Long Live the Kings's mission is to restore wild salmon and steelhead and support sustainable fishing in the Pacific Northwest.


Since our founding in 1986, LLTK has built and delivered projects throughout Puget Sound to restore our region’s treasured salmon and steelhead populations. Our work advances the science needed to find meaningful salmon recovery solutions by working across boundaries and disciplines, addressing vital information gaps, and identifying evidence based recovery actions. Whether leading efforts to improve fish passage at the Hood Canal Bridge, testing new solutions to reduce toxic stormwater runoff harming Coho, or helping students become salmon smart via our Survive the Sound education program, you can find evidence of LLTK led salmon recovery solutions throughout our watersheds.

Your donation today can help us make a difference for salmon by supporting one of our innovative projects. Here's how your support can impact our work.

$1,000 can help pay for the genetic testing for spawned fish at Glenwood Springs. Each year our teams take samples of returning salmon to learn about their health, their journey back to Orcas Island, and their genetic makeup. This information is vital as Long Live the Kings continues to learn and research to see if our methods are having a positive impact on the salmon population.

$500 can help Long Live the Kings as they partner with the Nisqually Indian Tribe on plans for habitat restoration in the Nisqually River Delta. A lot of community outreach and education needs to happen as the team ensures benefits from WSDOT’s planned I-5 redesign. Your donations help make it possible for that outreach to continue. The project, once successful, will benefit the Nisqually River ecosystem and community resilience for decades to come.

$250 can support our offshore monitoring efforts led by the Tulalip Tribes in partnership with the United States Geological Survey. Two weeks each year, Long Live the Kings’ Associate Director of Science, Liz Duffy, spends two weeks on a boat in Puget Sound gathering important biological information about salmon and other marine life to get a snapshot of marine health and learn more about what’s causing the low marine survival rates. Last year they traveled 200 nautical miles and examined 23,000 fish!

$150 can help our team create engaging, innovative classroom tools, make classroom visits, and find new avenues to reach new audiences for Survive the Sound, our annual online steelhead migration game. The more students, friends, and co-workers we can get involved in Survive the Sound, the more we can teach the public about the challenges that steelhead and salmon face, as well as what can be done to help the fish thrive.
