This semester’s Nature and World Cultures students outdid themselves with substantive, professional work: projects focusing on the challenges of retaining and revitalizing biocultural diversity (ancestral lands and waters, culturally significant biota, indigenous languages), in collaboration with Northern Californian tribes.

Thanks for sharing this excellent project. Very informative and interesting. Hope to see more video-interviews / reports from your students
Every semester, we have more completed projects. And if you’re attending the 2015 Society of Ethnobiology conference this May 6-9 at UC Santa Barbara, we’ll be showcasing student films during the Thursday and Friday lunch sessions.
thanks for the info.
