PSIP Description: 
Wild Chinook salmon begin to repopulate the Nisqually River's pristine spawning grounds.
Long Description: 
In the second part of this two-part special, Carl Safina meets the tribal leaders who inspired this grand vision of restoration, which has its roots in the native fishing rights campaigns of the 1960s; and our cameras discover some of the first wild Chinook salmon, descended miraculously from hatchery stock, now beginning to re-populate the Nisqually's pristine spawning grounds.
