Wild Steelhead Coalition
1% of sales of all RepYourWater merchandise featuring California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Steelhead themed designs goes the Wild Steelhead Coalition. The Wild Steelhead Coalition was founded in 2000 with the mission of increasing the return of wild steelhead to the rivers and streams of the west coast.
"Wild steelhead, the Washington state fish, are an important cultural and economic legacy in the Pacific Northwest and have been reduced to a fraction of their historic capacity. Over-harvest, habitat loss, ineffective hatchery practices, human-constructed barriers to migration, and misguided management strategies have all contributed to the decline–and in some cases extinction–of wild steelhead runs. The Wild Steelhead Coalition (WSC) believes that, without meaningful changes to policies and attitudes, these same factors will continue to reduce wild steelhead populations to the point where they will no longer be sustainable."
Beginning in the fall of 2014, the Wild Steelhead Coalition and RepYourWater launched a hat created together. It is available for purchase through both WSC and RYW. 50% of all proceeds from the sale of the hat from RYW will go directly to WSC to help increase the return of wild steelhead on the west coast.
