T he Adams River has one of the largest Sockeye salmon runs in North America and every fourth year is a "dominant" salmon run. The Adams River return provides a huge environmental boost to the surrounding eco- system thanks to decaying salmon carcasses. It also offers an economic boost thanks to hundreds of thousands of tourists who come from all over the world to Roderick Haig- Brown Provincial Park for the Salute to Sockeye Festival. The 2014 return of Sockeye salmon did not disappoint and I considered myself fortunate to be on hand. This year was par- ticularly special for me because I was there to represent the Pacific Salmon Foundation as the new chair of our board of directors. The Foundation's support for the conserva- tion of Adams River Sockeye and their habitats is emblematic of how we make a difference. In 2014 the Pacific Salmon Foundation was proud to partner with Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the Province of British Columbia and a corporate donor, Rocky Mountaineer, to provide the Adams River Salmon Society with a $75,000 grant for educational kiosks Adams River Salute to the Sockeye: A model partnership for salmon conservation co-EDIToRs Michael Meneer Elayne sun EDIToRIAL cooRDINAToR Matt currie ART DIREcToR Bernhard Holzmann coNTRIBuTINg wRITERs Natashia cox & Rachel Drennan Melanie Knight Dr. Isobel Pearsall D.c.
