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.
