"An ironic conservation piece that provides a graphic take on three salmon fry engaged in each other's company.
The oddly coloured three young salmon symbolize our youth. Some may be talking together, but not really identifying with the natural world around them. These times and all our technological conveniences have much of the population disassociated from nature, particularly in urban settings.
A further irony is that as vital as the fry are, just as vital is the role of our humans to converse and work together to preserve what is left; perhaps using the very technology that’s endangered us to track and restore damaged areas.
For me this represents the utter importance of getting the young out and into nature, educating them with the understanding of how we fit into the ecosystem called Earth and how nature responds to our actions."
Thanks to many groups of our younger generation, movements across the world are already making grand efforts to begin unique restoration processes in several geographic locations.
