This is the text (if you need help).

Rescuers are moving thousands of salmon to safety. The salmon got trapped in a river in Canada after a landslide. They cannot swim upriver to lay their eggs. Rescuers decided to fly the fish to the other side of the landslide by helicopter. The fish can then swim upriver. Rescuers are "working around the clock" to help.

If the salmon do not lay their eggs, their future will be in danger. This will affect the way of life of Canada's First Nations people. They need the salmon for food. Salmon has been important in their culture and traditions for hundreds of years. Three million salmon want to swim north. The rescuers need many ways to help the fish.
