One man is trading his desk job protecting environmental laws for a new conservation project of his own design.
Paul Moinester, former senior legislative assistant in the U.S. House of Representatives, is embarking on a six-month, 20,000-mile adventure to help protect wild fish and their habitat. He is meeting with people along the way who also work to protect wild fish, and sharing conservation stories in a blog.
Moinester’s conservation project, "An Upstream Journey," intends to spark interest in others to join the fight for wild fish and habitat protection.
