“What’s good for salmon is good for us.”

Chris Morgan, wildlife ecologist, conservationist, filmmaker and host of the podcast THE WILD, paddles his kayak through urban streams and lakes and to the Ballard Locks to find out more about how the salmon survive the city—and our role in protecting them. A Native American biologist and Seattle Aquarium staff show Chris how our actions play a huge role in salmon’s success and how we’re all connected through water, because “water is life.”
