Survive the Sound 2023

Sponsor a fish. Save a species. 

What's the problem?

Predators, disease, pollution, oh my! It’s tough in Puget Sound for steelhead. Something fishy is going on. Young steelhead are having a hard time surviving the trek from their freshwater homes to the open ocean. But Long Live the Kings is honing in on the problem and providing new hope for these unseen heroes. Using special high-tech tracking devices, they can discover where a steelhead's voyage is cut short and what might be leading to their untimely demise.

How we're helping

In May 2023, our team Prepare to Get Schooled cheered for a group of 48 young steelhead through Survive the Sound! We watched our team spokesfish, Hank, in its migratory race to survive Puget Sound. Along the way, we learned about the obstacles these steelhead faced on their perilous journey.

Sponsorship proceeds help Long Live the Kings in their efforts to restore wild salmon and steelhead. Come along on the journey with us again in 2024!


Bothell's team spokesfish was Hank!

As in years past, we asked the Bothell community to vote for which fish they thought should represent Bothell's team Prepare to Get Schooled. For the second year in a row, Hank received the most votes!

I'm Hank, your spokesfish! I was designed by Swinomish artist Jeanette Quintasket. Click me to learn more about me on my blog!
