Lorna Li
team_lorna_iLorna Li has 10 years of experience in social cause marketing for nonprofits.  Her background includes event production, program development, fundraising, strategic alliances, and scaling startup social ventures. Lorna has also worked on diverse social justice issues, such as Tibetan cultural preservation, globalization, indigenous rights, and environmental conservation.  She has produced a number of public programs on environmental sustainability, including former Vice President Al Gore’s groundbreaking presentation on climate change for UN World Environment Day 2005, in San Francisco.

An avid world-traveler, Lorna has visited over 40 countries and has lived in Hong Kong, Paris and Shanghai.  Her travels have taken her across the Himalayas and deep into the Amazon Basin, where her encounters with indigenous people instilled a deep respect for their traditional knowledge and ways of life.

The inspiration to launch Mariri Magazine, began with a 4 month journey in Brazil, where she accompanied 2 documentary film teams deep into the heart of the Amazon Basin to a remote Kaxinawa village, in a region still populated by uncontacted Indians.

Impressed by the vast ethnobotanical knowledge of the Kaxinawa pajés (shamans) and inspired by the dedication of numerous individuals who repeatedly risk their lives to protect the rainforest, she began to deepen her understanding about the rainforest and rainforest peoples.

During her inquiry into rainforest issues, she discovered a glaring omission in the global debate on environmental conservation – the voice of the indigenous people.  Lorna’s research has led her to believe that future of human civilization hinges delicately upon the deeply intertwined fate of indigenous peoples and the last, wild places on Earth.
