The Epic Migration of Endangered Snake River Salmon
More than 900 miles.
That’s how far Snake River salmon swim to reach their spawning grounds. Not only that, they climb 7,000 feet in elevation too. All to return home and continue the cycle of life, a process that’s imperative given their classification as an endangered species.
But because the federal government has refused to take the steps necessary to ensure their protection, those 900 miles are a never-ending fight for survival.
Later this fall, in conjunction with EP, Save Our Wild Salmon will be releasing a film that follows the journey of the critically endangered Snake River salmon, as these fish who migrate farther inland and higher than any other fish on Earth, making their way from the waters of southeast Alaska to the cold, wild rivers of Idaho’s Sawtooth Valley.http://www.vimeo.com/15041410
