Well, we've had a little secret project in the works for some time! And finally it's out.

An album by Dan Sultan called *Nali and Friends[]* with songs by Dan and stories by Rhys and some very cute accompanying music videos which you can see below.

A labour of love, working with the extraordinary Thin Green Line Foundation - who support frontline rangers across the world - is now finished. in late 2017, Rhys accompanied a group of indigenous rangers and Thin Green Line ambassador Dan Sultan to Uganda and Kenya as they met and shared knowledge with Masai Rangers and frontline rangers working in diverse habitats and confronting profound sacrifice in the name of conservation. The result is a film that takes us into the family of rangers to understand the importance of the work they do and how vital our support is as they fight to keep the earth's wild places intact.

Along the way we got to meet some inspiring people working in community to effect powerful change while making, what we hope, is a beautiful expression of a progressive society demanding more from our relationship with financial institutions.
