Sixth Grader Works To Save The Sockeye Salmon...With Socks!

Lonesome Larry Project

When Topher Jones was in 5th grade, his class raised sockeye salmon to learn about the endangered species. The lesson inspired the driven student to make a difference and help save the sockeye. Idaho Matters talks with the 11-year-old founder of the Lonesome Larry Project, which sells socks to support research and conservation of the fish.
