Survive the Sound’, a free online education campaign, was developed in 2017 as a mechanism for bringing the science we do for salmon recovery to students and the general public. The program invites students, teachers, and families to learn about salmon and steelhead in Puget Sound by selecting a fun fish avatar and joining a team to participate in a friendly competition. Each fish represents a real fish that we track through Puget Sound as part of our research. Last year, we had thousands of people participate.

During the month of April, Survive the Sound participants use activities from our Educational Toolkit  (NGSS-align, videos, activities, and more) to learn more about salmon and our local environment, while working to recruit friends and family to pick their own fish and join a team. The more people who join, the better your odds are at “winning” with the most surviving fish. Once the migration starts on May 4th, the teams are locked and the fish start leaving their rivers and swimming to the ocean. Over the 5-day migration (May 4-8), participants get daily updates on their fish’s progress via an online map, learn facts about salmon and the Puget Sound ecosystem, and have an opportunity to form hypotheses while observing the, often interesting, fish behavior. Few fish will survive, but everyone learns about these miraculous fish while interacting with others from their home.
