The sociable weaverbird is one of nature’s greatest builders. It constructs complex nesting structures — the largest built by any bird — that provide alternatives for varying climatic conditions, and house hundreds of birds and other species. At GIA we strive to emulate this resilience and inclusivity as drivers and precipitators of community.
