We are existing in an extremely pivotal time in human evolution. KEYSTONE is a story about the land, humans, flora, and fauna. A story about the co-habitation that we must embrace as humans, in order to create planetary abundance for future generations.

By re-integrating our economic systems with ecosystems we can create prosperity and environmental renewal. By working initially with keystone species as a super-power of regeneration. The signal that this is being achieved is by the return of biodiversity. 

This film specifically looks at the role Bison play in the American plains. By removing this keystone species we have altered an ecosystem and affected all of its inhabitants. Not only have we removed this critical species we have introduced cattle into the landscape to further alter the ecosystem.  

To create more abundance, we look at bringing back the bison herds and restoring the western prairie. If we balanced our dependence on cattle for food with Bison we could also eliminate our need to grow GMO corn. This would open up vital agricultural land for organic farming and the raising of food for humans instead of livestock.  

The result of ecosystem renewal is planetary abundance for humans and all life forms. By working with nature and keystone species we can generate prosperity in the landscape for present and future generations.
