Ambassadors

These are influential people from many walks of life who believe in reefnetting and Lummi Island Wild as fervently as we do. They know that wild salmon is to the Salish Sea what the wild buffalo was to the Great Plains: a necessary, iconic, and deeply integral part of our Northwest environment. They have all been out on the gears fishing with us, and have witnessed first-hand the respect and care we show for our salmon.

If you would like to be one of our ambassadors, contact us to make that happen. Ambassadors receive many perks both in season and outside of it. All we require of them is that they tell our story wherever appropriate, and promise to never knowingly eat farmed salmon.
