As a Geoscience education company, with a special interest in responsible science communication, based in the Canary Islands, we were in a unique position to document the 2021 Volcán de Tajogaite eruption in La Palma. We wanted to ensure our resources could be put to good use during the volcanic emergency and beyond to benefit the residents and tourists alike. The La Palma project by GeoTenerife is a multi-media project which aims to increase the awareness and understanding of volcanic activity, volcanic emergency plans, and reconstruction in La Palma. Our self-funded research on La Palma has led to our award-winning documentaries “Lava Bombs: Truths Behind the Volcano” and “Lava Bombs 2: The Reconstruction” is due for release in winter 2023. Our work is open access, in non-specialist language, and resident-focused.
