Ecologist Bob Furstenberg looks at how humans have pushed salmon out of the habitat on which they depend. Salmon have always spent their lives facing incredible odds, but today pollution, development, poor logging practices, runoff from farmland, indiscriminate water use, over-fishing, dams, and climate change are proving to be too much for the salmon's survival. The connection between the survival of people and salmon is clear: we both need clean water to survive. Do we really think we can live without other species on this planet? Do we want to?
