Terralingua

Salt Spring Island, BC Canada

Through research, education, and outreach, Terralingua works to protect, maintain, and restore global biocultural diversity—the living network made up of the millions of species of plants and animals that have evolved on Earth, and the thousands of human cultures and languages that have developed over time. Biocultural diversity is both the source and the expression of all the beauty and potential of life on Earth. Terralingua’s magazine, Langscape, is a vehicle for the voice of Mother Nature, offering stories from around the world about humanity’s interconnection with the Earth.
