Jacques has received several awards for his scientific research; authored more than 20 scientific and policy articles and publications; and frequently speaks at regional and national environmental conferences. He holds a Ph.D. in Marine, Estuarine, and Environmental Sciences from the University of Maryland, an M.S. in Marine Science from Louisiana State University, and a B.S. in Oceanography and a B.A. in Zoology from the University of Washington.
Jacque will be at Immanuel Presbyterian to talk about Long Live the Kings—what they are doing, why and how you can help.
Long Live the Kings partners with a breadth of stakeholders, at multiple scales…to bring salmon home for the long run. Since their founding in 1986, Long Live the Kings has worked to restore wild salmon and steelhead and to support sustainable fishing. Their programs―combining on-the-ground field work with scientific innovation and broad partnerships―help decision-makers advance salmon recovery while balancing the needs of fish and people.
They are rebuilding salmon and steelhead populations in Hood Canal and Puget Sound, unraveling the mystery of low salmon survival in the Salish Sea, advancing science and retooling management throughout the Pacific Northwest.
