Off The Beaten Path: The Ruby Mines of Madagascar in 1999 with Ela Chapin

Monday, March 30, 2020

Come hear about a journey to southern Madagascar, 20 years ago, witnessing the beauty and simplicity of life there, rare island desert habitats, and a visit to a gold-rush-style mining camp where rubies had just been discovered months before. See images of the village which exploded from dozens of people to thousands, and all the environmental and community challenges that come with the precious stones industry.
