In the heart of the spectacular forests of Papua New Guinea, zoologist Grace Luke is on a team collecting data to reduce deforestation and forest degradation and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions that negatively impact the planet’s climate. Describing her work as an entomologist as part of the country’s Multi-Purpose National Forest Inventory, Grace Luke walks the viewer through how she counts the biodiversity of the forest’s remarkable moth population. She reflects on being a woman scientist and how being female gives her special insight into how to protect the forests for generations to come. The effort receives support from UN REDD, the FAO and the European Union.
