Salmon Parks follows an Indigenous led plan to recover wild salmon and restore critical watersheds amidst the looming threat of industrial scale logging. The film reveals the fascinating interconnectedness between wild salmon and ancient forests while aiming to help secure the establishment of Salmon Parks in Mowachaht/Muchalaht and Nuchatlaht traditional territory, as a matter of Nuu-chah-nulth law, with recognition by federal and provincial governments.
