Archiving The Salmon Project
The Salmon Project was designed as a means of facilitating a broad conversation among Alaskans to explore, assess, celebrate, and share our respective and varied connections to salmon.
The vision was to help create a future where Alaskans are united in an:
- Awareness of the economic, environmental, social and cultural importance of salmon for ourselves and for all Alaskans, including those whose connection to salmon is different than our own.
- Understanding of the challenges facing Alaska’s wild salmon resource.
- Commitment to collective decisions and personal actions that will ensure future generations of Alaskans live with an abundance of wild salmon.
As was originally envisioned, after 7 years of talking with Alaskans and facilitating vibrant discussions among Alaskans, the Salmon Project itself has now entered its archival stage. This site attempts to document the major components of the project's work, as well as to place as many of its resources as possible in an accessible format.
Sections of this site include:
- Early establishment and feasibility process
- Post-feasibility/active project work
- Detail on the extensive body of public opinion research conducted during the course of the project
