Our salmon keepers have been of the extraordinary variety this year, ensuring that ALL 55 eggs made it to our third annual Salmon Day release. One of the salmon keepers, Henry (10), shares his story.
Salmon are one of the coolest things on the planet. Salmon can sense vibrations through their sides. They can detect one particle in a billion similar to where they were born. Their home river is like a radar station calling them back. On April 15th BrainBoost released baby salmon at Spanish Banks river. We did this event to help the salmon species grow. The salmon population is heavily declining because of loss of habitat, and overfishing. We should care about the salmon because they help keep our ecosystem balanced. Approximately 50 salmon were released into the stream. Everyone got to release a salmon into the stream and learned new things about them. It was a great experience for all salmon lovers.
