As an east coast transplant, my first encounter with a pacific salmon was defining. Awed by their life story that I’d only read about, to actually encounter one in the river knowing how it got there grabbed me, deep in my psyche. It was magnificent. And tragic.
I am drawn to a quote by the late Billy Frank Jr., who has inspired generations to care for the salmon.
"To the degree that we succeed in protecting salmon,... we generate the spirit to survive ourselves."
I'm investing in Eva's Wild because it embodies this ethos, and it gives me hope that we can and will save our salmon, and in doing do, save ourselves!
