Above: Spawning wild salmon
The Environment Team is proud to sponsor an evening of education and fundraising where we will hear from Indigenous leaders working to remove open-net fish farms from their waters. Julia McIntyre-Smith and Chiefs Ernest Alfred and Willie Moon will speak of the relationship between the wild salmon, the environment and their Indigenous communities. Dr. David Suzuki will talk of the science linking fish farms to the decrease in wild stocks.
This will be a powerful, moving evening and you will come away with new appreciation for the imperiled wild salmon and the Peoples whose cultures they are so entwined with.
The talk will be held in the Sanctuary, followed by refreshments and a silent auction in Hewett Hall.
There you will also find tables set aside to brain storm ways to further help the wild salmon defenders.
We will post here decisions made to carry on this initiative.
