Tom and his partner-in-crime Nuin (a.k.a my evil twin!) have recently launched their exciting project, Our Place On Earth. They will be researching and documenting community-based responses to climate change through producing a documentary film. Their dedication to their work is truly inspirational, and we need more of that in the world!
You can check out their website here to learn more, and their blog, and help spread the word!!!
This project would not have been possible without the wonderful support and the encouragement of so many of you, in so many different levels and stages of the project. I really cannot thank you enough. Whether it be inviting my jellies to come back, or going to the hardware store with me after a long long day of work, or making me the most amazing breakfast on my last day of installation, or letting my anemones and barnacles invade your living room, to just simply being there, I truly appreciate everything that you are.
