BBC News published this video item, entitled “Saving a million salmon and a tribe in a historic drought – BBC News” – below is their description.

The Klamath river is becoming too warm for salmon to live. If it dries up, a Native American tribe could face its doom.

The extreme drought in California has made the river shrink and heated it up. The fish couldn’t swim upstream because of the dams.

Officials are removing them to save over a million salmon, and the Hupa tribe, which relies on salmon as a food source for centuries.
