The three-minute film, produced by Danni and Emma, was announced at COP26 as an Impact Award winner in a young persons’ film competition run by youth4planet/Earthbeat on Friday, 5 November 2021.
They talk about how the film was made & the team involved in the restoration of the Plant and the story being told of how St Helena is conserving rare species and the exposure for St Helena the film has generated globally and upcoming events to celebrate and share on Island.
The film was the only one from the competition to feature on BBC World Service Newshour. Friday’s (5th Nov) short interview with Emma focused on the Nursery Team’s aim to soon plant out some of the new She Cabbages within the Island’s Cloud Forest, and looked at why restoring endemics like the She Cabbage and planting them at the Cloud Forest is important in St Helena’s efforts to combat climate change.
