A conservationist is raising awareness of native plants and birds, one decorative pin at a time


Danya Weber first got her feet wet in conservation working in the native forests of Kauaʻi. But she’s forged a path in a much different landscape — a digital one. Weber started Laulima in 2017, an online store and Instagram account that sells patches, pins, and other merchandise featuring native flora and fauna. The Conversation spoke with Weber about how she came to art as a tool for conservation.

This interview aired on The Conversation on Nov. 19, 2021.
