For thousands of years, millions of salmon completed their epic oceanic journeys and returned home to the estuaries and rivers of early Vancouver. Much has changed in the last 150 years - most of the streams are gone and urban development and runoff impact the remaining salmon. Fernando Lessa, author and photographer of Urban Salmon, will take us on an incredible photographic journey underneath our local rivers to experience the natural beauty of our urban waterways and inspire us to protect these fragile ecosystems.
This is part of the One Earth speaker series. Our Earth is full of incredible diversity! See it through the eyes of scientists, naturalists, and photographers as they share their inspirational stories and knowledge about the natural world. This speaker series is hosted at the Ecology Centre and is for ages 15 and up.
