Science can be a way of forming intimacy and respect with other species that is rivaled only by the observations of traditional knowledge holders…Heart-driven scientists whose notebooks, smudged with salt marsh mud and filled with columns of numbers, are love letters to salmon. In their own way, they are lighting a beacon for salmon, to call them back home.
