Thank you for this. All too often we think we know best and end up making the situation worse, don't we -- for Nature, for others, for ourselves.

and capitalism has done yet more, of course: making estuaries where young salmon can more safely grow into grazing land for cattle; building dykes and dams to meet our own perceived "economic needs"; overfishing to make as much money as quickly as possible, it just goes on and on.

Robin Wall Kimmerer, in her book *Braiding Sweetgrass* has a poetic description of the relationship between the salmon and the First Peoples and the impacts on local ecologies.

Your story reminded me of her wisdom as well.
