Carrying the Seeds of Life

The 36 Biodiversity Hotspots and the future of life on Earth

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?
