Alexandra Morton: The Fight to Save Wild Salmon

April 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

The rise of industrial fish farming on the Pacific Northwest has created an existential threat to wild salmon and the ecosystems that rely on them. For years, conservationists and biologists have sounded alarms on how pollution, the plague of sea-lice and bacteria, and unsustainable practices from this industry are affecting one of this region’s keystone species.

Come hear biologist and activist Alexandra Morton discuss her new book, NOT ON MY WATCH, where she tells the story of her 30-year fight against big business and government corruption to save British Columbia’s wild salmon.

She will appear in conversation with journalist Emilee Gilpin, who is the managing editor of IndigiNews.
