The Heartbeat: The Salmon & People Project

The Smithsonian’s “Salmon & People Project” studies Alaska’s wetlands to help keep salmon fishing sustainable. The Smithsonian is part of a collaborative network conducting scientific research to understand how to best protect the future of salmon in Alaska’s Kenai Lowlands region. They’re conveying this information to local communities so that they can make informed decisions that impact salmon-supporting habitats. Smithsonian science is supporting not only the salmon but also the local economies and communities that depend on them.
