Inspiration, Patience and Grief

…"The salmon have not given up… how can we?"


Speaking to a small audience at the 2004 Bioneers Conference in California, Tempest Williams talks about what fundamentally motivates her as an activist. In response to a question about patience, she speaks about endurance and the need to keep active in the defence of nature. She describes her recent visit to the Artic National Wildlife Refuge with husband Brooke Williams and closes with an inspiring passage from one of her poems.
