VIDEO: On the verge of extinction, the Southern California Steelhead might be saved by these river restoration champions

This 19-minute video—Southern California Steelhead: Against All Odds—is a documentary by the non-profit river restoration organization, CalTrout, about one of California’s most magnificent and endangered native fish species.

Once numbering in the tens of thousands, these resilient fish are now on the brink of extinction. Dams, development, water extraction, pollution and climate change have all taken their toll.

However, Southern California Steelhead are not necessarily doomed to extinction: a small number of people can make a big difference in helping recover this iconic species.

Visit for more information on what CalTrout and its partners are doing to help recover these beautiful fish.
