Carrying the Seeds of Life

On Wednesday 13th March at 7.30pm, The Salisbury Centre will host a launch and workshop for the book “Carrying the Seeds of Life: The 36 Biodiversity Hotspots and the future of life on Earth.”

“Carrying the Seeds of Life” is a fusion of conservation science and adventure story, illustrated by eight international artists, and published by the Biodiversity Illustrated partnership, funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the EU.

The thirty-six Biodiversity Hotspots are the places where the diversity of life on Earth is in the greatest danger.

Cahya, a young healer, needs to find a cure for the disease of blindfoldness, which is driving her people to destroy the forest where they live. Guided by the endangered species she meets along the way, Cahya must gather a seed from each hotspot while learning about biodiversity and conservation. But will she complete her mission before it’s too late?

Sign up here for the free book launch and workshop at 7.30pm on Wed 13 March. Can’t make the launch on the 13th? The exhibition is open at the Salisbury Centre for the whole of March.

You can also download the e-book for free from the Biodiversity Illustrated website.
