The reasons for the ESA classification are not limited to mining. Add logging, urbanization, logging of fires and landslides in the region, and salmon driving doesn't have a chance. But RESOLVE, a nonprofit that tackles some of the world's most critical challenges through innovative, unexpected partnerships, wants to fix it.
Their suggestion: Combine recovery with restoration to improve streams and open them for salmon, grayling and other fish species to return.
Since RESOLVE first introduced the Salmon Gold Partnership in 201
"There is a lot of tension between mining and salmon," says Stephen D'Asposito, CEO of RESOLVE. “Salmon gold is like a peace agreement between mining and salmon habitat. It is a place where the three sectors can work together: the restoration community, First Nations and the mining industry. "
"As we continue to increase the use of recycled materials, we are seeking innovative ways to procure gold responsibly," said Paula Pyers, Apple's supplier responsibility manager. "Collaboration with Tiffany, a pioneer in sustainable procurement, as well as RESOLVE ensures that salmon gold can be an example of how the industry can evolve."
