For more than a century, the upper Columbia River white sturgeon has been swimming against the currents of change.

Now, the Upper Columbia White Sturgeon Recovery Initiative (UCWSRI), a coalition of Canadian and American stakeholders, is engaged in an effort to bring this ancient fish back from the brink.
