Washington State is on the hunt for a PR consultant to develop a strategic communications plan surrounding its decade-long, multi-faceted efforts to restore diminishing wild salmon populations.

salmonFederal state and local entities are involved in the effort, which is coordinated through seven salmon recovery organizations.

Gov. Jay Inslee's Salmon Recovery Office has released an RFP to foster stakeholder outreach and develop a communication plan for the so-called Council of Regions. The plan will include reaching as wide an audience as possible to explain investments being made to recover salmon populations, as well as communicating data and positioning the state's "enthusiastic, energetic and credible leadership" in salmon recovery.

Budget is $30-$40K for a pact running from mid-December through early May.
