Rising Tide #69 – Alexandra Morton vs. the Salmon Farms

In this episode we talk with Alexandra Morton, who’s been called the Jane Goodall of Canada. After spending years studying the language of resident Orcas along a remote stretch of British Columbia she turned her attention to the salmon farms that displaced the Orcas and harmed the wild salmon they feed on. 

Morton discusses Orcas, her decades long fight with the industry and ultimately how she – with Indigenous first nations – helped shut down the industrial fish farms. Plus she imitates what Orcas sound like when they’re talking.
