Producedfor the ILK dialogue workshop (11-13 January 2016, UNESCO Headquarters, Paris)organized within the framework of the Intergovernmental Platform onBiodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), this film presents extracts frominterviews with three reindeer herders from the Sami community of Sirges inJokkmokk, Sweden. The herders attest to the importance of biological diversityfor their herding livelihood and their dependence on the health of the borealforest ecosystem. They describe the practices that threaten herding along withthe remaining stands of old forest, and their conflicts notably with industrialforestry. Expressed in other terms, they analyze the ecosystem servicesprovided by the biodiversity of their subarctic forest milieu, and confirm thatany threat to the biodiversity upon which they and their herds depend, is athreat to their way of life.
