Threads of Life Logo

In this edition of our newsletter we launch a new video about Threads of Life . We needed something to share over social media that conveys our work on livelihoods, cultural survival and nature conservation. The discipline of distilling all that we do into a three-minute film helped us both refine our mission and our message. 

We hope you enjoy it and share it with your friends!
