No Place to Spawn

When the salmon of the Okanagan River come home over eleven dams on their year-long journey from Siberia…

…they can’t spawn in their traditional home, the Skaha and Okanagan Lake Systems, because somebody else has used up all the water …


This is what is called global warming, but really is the result of domestic water pumping and logging in the high country. To bring our fish home, we’re going to need a super hero …

… but, as you can see, he got run over by a truck. The next best thing would be to build a) a fish ladder over the Skaha Lake dam, b) a spawning channel, and c) put some water back into the creeks. Let’s start talking about how we can make this earth habitable again.
