Introducing NTFP Spotlight Saturday! A new segment highlighting the non-timber forest products found in our project zones. We’re kicking things off with the achi tree. This tropical hardwood is a vast canopy tree and is capable of living several hundred years but is often felled for its timber. However, the seeds of the tree, when ground, are a natural soup thickener and work in a similar way to corn flour. In addition to being a good source of gluten free carbs, it also contains hydrocolloids to help reduce blood cholesterol and glucose levels in diabetics. Check out some of the other NTFP’s we’re working with at ‪https://www.therainforester.org/ntfp-spotlight‬

I have a new favourite animal... they are incredibly cute, like little pine cones, which is why they are also called “Tannenzapfentiere“ in German (literal “pine cone animals“). But they are the most trafficked mammals in the world, so I wanted to draw one snuggled up and safe. . . . . #ink#inktober9 #inktober #inktober2019 #UndyingTales #end#endangeredspecies #endangered #pangolin #tannenzapfentier #dra#draw/a> #draw #cute #sling
