Will Your Steelhead Survive the Sound?

Blog series logo

By Ashley Bagley

I’m avidly following my steelhead’s migration down the Skokomish River—so far it has migrated 34 miles from its rearing site, headed for the Pacific Ocean!

I recently decided to join a team and sponsor a steelhead in the name of conservation. Every spring, Long Live the Kings hosts its Survive the Sound campaign to increase awareness about steelhead survival and raise money for conservation efforts. The campaign is essentially an interactive web challenge that uses data from tagged, migrating steelhead smolts (juveniles) to allow individuals or teams to sponsor a steelhead. . Once you decide to sponsor, you can create your own fish avatar, track its migration, and see if it survives.
