With the tagline “Explore to Conserve,” The Kamchatka Project is a group of kayakers working to raise awareness about salmon conservation. In the summer of 2010 they will travel to the Siberian mountain landscapes of Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula. Partnering with scientists, the fly fishing community and National Geographic the team will investigate the complex relationships between the place, its people, and its fisheries.
As part of the project, the team will generate an online educational platform, film an adventure documentary, collect valuable scientific data for researchers, create print media pieces and organize a speaking tour.
They are throwing a fundraiser event on March 13th at Keen Footwear.
