Sandalwood, or lack of!

Apologies to followers, but we had no internet and not much electricity for most of this trip so were not able to write updates. 

There is a lot to write about, and we'll be working on this blog over the next few weeks, so please check back soon!

Why this visit to India?

Exploring the challenges of sandalwood poaching in India.

Today a percentage of the Indian sandalwood (Santalum album) available on the market has been poached in India, sometimes by organised gangs who have also poached elephants.

We have been working in Australia to help promote sustainable community-based business for Indigenous Communities.

To set the scene for this journey, we urge to you learn about the work we have done in Australia so far on the Aveda website video library
