As part of our celebration of the second dam removal on Maine’s Penobscot River, we’ll share stories from our biologists and partners striving to restore the river for Atlantic salmon and other fish and ensuring it continues to provide benefits for the people of Maine.

Happy Endangered Species Day! We’re honoring one of our many heroes in endangered species conservation, Steve Koenig of Maine. Read how Steve has helped restore endangered Atlantic salmon.
