Protecting Salmon from Coast to Coast

“Protecting Salmon from Coast to Coast” is a 40-minute documentary produced for Russian TV with English subtitles.


Representatives from all three regions (Sakhalin Island, Kamchatka, and Khabarovsk) in the Russian Far East met in Portland, Oregon in 2011 for a Russian-Oregon watershed council exchange. The representatives met with state and federal government representatives, tribal representatives, educators, and local conservationists. The purpose of the exchange was to share with the Russians best practices in watershed stewardship and management from established, successful U.S. watershed council models, and in turn the U.S. participants could learn more about the issues facing Russian watershed councils and the methods used for addressing their challenges.
