Great Land, Great Stories 


SalmonWorld is a project of radio personality and naturalist, Richard Nelson, and writer and filmmaker, Liz McKenzie. Liz and Richard travel Alaska and the world discovering salmon’s role in our ocean and terrestrial environments, our economies, and our communities and cultures. We use video, essay, and photography to tell these inspiring and educational stories.
