Meaningful Movies: The Last Salmon: Short Films and Discussion About the Pebble Mine
Monday, November 11, 2019, 06:30pm - 08:30pm

Bristol Bay, Alaska is home to over half of the world’s Sockeye Salmon. A robust and sustainable fishing economy brings in $1.5 billion in revenue annually, and the local population subsists off of salmon as they have for 10,000 years. One of the largest open pit mines in the world is in the process of being permitted for construction in the heart of this watershed. The Pebble Mine is slated to produce 10 billion tons of toxic waste, 3000 for every person on earth. Join us to learn why the threat of large-scale mining in Bristol Bay is our problem here in the Puget Sound. This event will feature a series of short videos followed by a discussion and Q and A with experts on the topic.
