Laura Rose Day Laura Rose Day is the Executive Director of the Penobscot River Restoration Trust, a not-for-profit organization working to create sustainable native sea-run fisheries on the Penobscot River for people and wildlife. Laura holds degrees in wildlife management, as well as in environmental and energy law and has worked on behalf of the public's interest in water resources for nearly twenty years, including as Counsel for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the National Wildlife Federation's Lake Superior and Biodiversity Programs, and as Watershed Program Director for the Natural Resources Council of Maine.

"It's easy to get caught up in the technical, policy goings-on that you have to be focused on every day," said Laura Rose Day, watersheds project director for the Natural Resources Council of Maine, "but Sept. 11, I think, really drove home the deepest levels of what nature does for people and why it's important to not only protect nature but help make sure that people can voice that connection."
Judy Walker's first instinct on Sept. 11 was to go home, but she was scheduled to teach an Elderhostel program at Gilsland Farm that afternoon.
It wasn't the best program she ever taught, but at the end of the day a woman approached her and thanked her, saying how wonderful it was in the middle of all the tragedy to be able to reflect upon what had happened in the peace and solitude of the outdoors.

Laura Rose Day is executive director of the Penobscot River Restoration Project, which has a led a $64 million effort over the last 11 years to bring Atlantic salmon, and other sea-run fish, back to the Penobscot in greater numbers. So far this year, more Atlantic Salmon have passed through the fish lift than were counted in all of 2014.
But it's a fraction of the number needed to ensure survival of the species, she says, and efforts need to be made beyond the mouth of the river. "Success in restoring this river requires a lot of different parties to play important roles," Day says, "and controlling the take of fish in the ocean is extremely important."
And that's why Laura Rose Day and other conservationists are worried by commercial fishing activity taking place nearly 2,000 miles away in the Arctic waters off Greenland, which is resisting pressure from the U.S., Canada and the European Union to limit its salmon harvest to "sustainable" levels.
