“Adopt-a-Salmon” Restoration Program: for Douglas Adams

March 11, 2013

Douglas Adams is one of my favourite authors and it’s his birthday today!  Serendipitously, I came across the “Adopt-a-Salmon” Restoration Program while researching Ontario watersheds and tributaries for a presentation in my Environmental Science class here at Ryerson.

So, to commemorate his birthday and the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, I adopted two Atlantic Salmons (it’s only $10 each, AND you get to name them, which is pretty awesome).  So, now I have a male salmon named “Salmon of Doubt“, after the title of the book he was working on at the time of his death, and “Salmon of Knowledge”, his female counterpart and BFF (I’m sure he’ll need one).

So long, Douglas Adams, and thanks for all the fish!
