The Endangered Language Alliance Toronto is one organization working towards preserving some of the world’s endangered languages. Toronto is a particularly diverse area with many smaller communities which have preserved their own languages to this point, but are struggling to keep them up. The Alliance, along with other organizations spread all over, works to record audio and video data of these languages being spoken. It is a beautiful step in maintaining the world’s many languages and it seems like a program with potential to spread and have major impact on other parts of the world as well.
