Last winter, we introduced you to a Boise middle school student behind the “Lonesome Larry Project, a project by Topher Jones to save the sockeye salmon. His approach? Selling socks. 

In just one year, Topher has raised more than $12,000 to protect the sockeye and other threatened fish in the western United States. Today, Topher and his mom Karen join Idaho Matters once again to talk about the very latest in this project and to share some exciting news.
