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, we’ll 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, make their way from the coast of Alaska to Idaho’s Sawtooth Valley.
