Center for Health spoof takes on serious subject

1 min read

The Center for Health and the Global Environment at Harvard Medical School recently launched “The (Bio)DaVersity Code” — a short, Flash-animated spoof of “The Da Vinci Code” that illustrates the importance of biodiversity to the planet’s health. Free Range Graphics, creators of the award-winning “The Meatrix,” produced the short.

In promoting “The (Bio)DaVersity Code,” the center has partnered with the Buckminster Fuller Institute, the Sierra Club, and the National Audubon Society, among other nongovernmental organizations. Since its launch in late February, more than 1 million people have viewed the film. Visit to view the short.
