A MUST WATCH! Recorded live on November 23, 2019, now available online. Alexandra Morton explains how following the wisdom of salmon can save our lives.
Excerpts about this event From TedXSeattle.com:
"What can salmon teach us about sustainability in a complex environment? Marine biologist Alexandra Morton shares startling new research that lets us decode the information stored in a salmon’s immune system. The data reveals where we’re harming the fish, the ocean, and ourselves – ultimately revealing lessons for how humans can thrive on this planet without destroying it."
"In 1981, Alexandra founded Raincoast Research Society, a science-based association committed to researching the devastating impacts of Atlantic salmon farming on British Columbia’s wild salmon stocks. Partnering with scientists around the world, her organization produced some of the first studies on salmon farm impacts in British Columbia and continues to break new ground in this field. In 2010, Alexandra won the Women of Discovery Sea Award, in recognition of her achievements in science and exploration. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx".
