The E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation’s Collaborative Storytelling Project aims to capture stories about our connection with nature, and how we are inspired and transformed by this connection. The project will use interviews, oral histories, documentary photography, and video and web-based projects to explore moments of discovery. We hope that by sharing these stories, we will strengthen our individual and collective experience of the importance of our biological heritage, and inform and inspire a grassroots network of future environmental stewards.
BioBlitz 2014, held at the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in San Francisco, was featured on CBS Sunday Morning. During BioBlitz 2014, staff from the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation gathered stories from students who shared their transformative moments of discovery.
At BioBlitz 2016 in Washington, D.C., the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation asked young participants:
“If you could save half of the Earth for nature, what would you save?”
