The dugong is one of the most endangered marine mammals in Indian waters today. Being elusive and inhabiting remote or often turbid waters adds to the mysteriousness of these mammals. This film gives an insight into the lives of a small isolated population of dugongs in the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago. This was made possible through a decade long research programme. It highlights the present status of the animal, its habitat and suggests simple ways that can contribute towards its well being.

The #WildForLife Conservation Champions films were produced by UN Environment as part of their #WildForLife campaign against wildlife crime. The films tell the stories of three Kenyan conservation champions who dedicate their lives to protecting endangered species.

For the past three decades, Rosmarie Ruf has dedicated her life to protecting the endangered okapi endemic to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Given the country’s instability and share of challenges, some would say it is no place for a woman. But after the passing of her husband, Rosmarie stepped into the role of Director of the Okapi Conservation Project and has quietly become the Jane Goodall of okapi conservation. Although she says the okapi are the ones that saved her, Rosmarie just might be the unsung hero to save these “ghosts of the forest.”

A team of archaeologists are looking for evidence of humans--the oldest sites they can find in the Discovery Islands off Vancouver Island, British Columbia. When the glaciers receded, people arrived. These people adapted to coastal living, even as the shorelines changed dramatically as sea levels rose and fell. Come into the field with the archaeologists for a behind-the-scenes look at how they piece together the history of coastal living for the last 13,000 years.

A VR first - you dive through the air with one of the world’s largest Eagles and see the mechanics of flight in a way that’s never been possible before.

Join us on a journey through the Coral Triangle and its magnificent coral reefs. These underwater gardens have the largest biodiversity of life on Earth and can only be compared to tropical rainforests. But as the planet keeps warming, our oceans are changing. Coral bleaching, ocean acidification, overfishing and pollution are threatening the world’s coral reefs and their fragile ecosystems. Our oceans and its reefs must be protected now for the benefit of future generations and the health of our blue planet.

Join me on an introspective journey as I hike the Trans-Catalina Trail.

Legend has it that the shark is a lone wolf. He hunts alone. Think again. The latest science shows that the shark actually hunts in packs. In a groundbreaking experiment, five of the most experienced underwater scientists in the world will dive at night among 700 starving sharks, the largest school ever recorded. It took them 3 years of preparation to dare descend among the predators. Their goal is to fit electronic trackers on one hundred squalls to monitor their movement and organization during nocturnal hunting.The challenge is to produce a 3D mapping which will reveal the sharks’ movements, gathering points, attacks and strategies, at a scale that has never been done before. This study revolutionizes our understanding of the world’s greatest predator.

Conservation of wildlife requires the active support of local people. Ensuring that families tangibly benefit from the protection of wildlife populations is key to garnering support and building a local constituency for conservation. As the Nouabale-Ndoki National Park in northern Congo celebrates its 25th anniversary, this short film looks at how the success of the park and the local communities have been inextricably intertwined.

A DARK DAY IN IRAN’S DESERT follows, during a day the work of the men who are trying to save one of the most threatened cat species of the Planet: The Asiatic Cheetah. As we will see, both the conservationists and cheetahs are severally threatened.

Business owner and dog-enthusiast Richelle, believes that her dog might be the key to protecting the million-dollar honey industry in New Zealand. In the foothills of Canterbury, Richelle and her husband manage 3000 bee hives, but they’re threatened by a deadly disease called American foulbrood, which could wipe out their business. She asks Rene Gloor, a detector dog trainer to help who says that you can train a dog to detect anything. Unfortunately, not everyone agrees that a dog is reliable enough to find American foulbrood and save New Zealand’s honey.

Earth From Space gives us a unique perspective on our planet that previous natural history series couldn’t show you: the context of how these stories fit into the wider world. We can see things our animals can’t, such as much needed rain after a drought or threats approaching such as hurricanes or deforestation; how the environment can dictate the behaviour of an animal; and indeed how animals can shape the landscape around them. And we can look at earth’s changes over time and make new discoveries: satellite images are now an important tool to monitor the health of our planet.

Years of overfishing have seen Africa’s penguins plummet to frighteningly low numbers, with scientists at the University of Cape Town heeding the gloomy warning that they could be extinct by the year 2026. Africa’s penguins need a new home. A Place For Penguins follows an unlikely duo as they team up to make them one, taking on an ambitious, novel and entirely unique project creating the world’s first artificially-induced African penguin colony.

Students from four different schools in three different locations learn about local environmental issues and commit to making a difference in their community. Service Learning is much more than community service, it can influence the student’s life in substantial ways, and maybe even change the world. Students collect data on an artificial reef to learn how to protect corals, 4th graders propagate native Apple Snails and restore native trees in the wetlands of Florida... and in New York, students are finding solutions to help repopulate ancient oyster beds and clean up the waterways around Manhattan. Amazing projects... for the Planet!

The Monterey Bay Aquarium Board of Trustees established the David Packard Award to honor leaders whose achievements embody the qualities of thought and action that David Packard held dear, and who have effectively worked to make the future of our planet surer and more sustainable. In 2018, Bill Gates was presented the David Packard Award. The event raised $3,680,984.79, which will benefit the conservation programs of the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. This year’s event kicked off with a video, A Reason for Hope, which reflects the aquarium’s conservation focus and global scope of work.

A Road Through the Wild is an interactive 360 experience that follows along the path of the Beartooth Highway, named America’s Scenic By-way. The road is bookended by Cooke City, MT and Red Lodge, MT. Both communities steeped in the history of the area are located to the northeast entrance of Yellowstone National Park offering ample opportunities to see wildlife and scenic landscapes. Visit locations along the highway to see the scenery the Beartooth Highway offers while learning about the history and natural history of the area through hotspots, text and historic photographs in each location. You may even find hidden locations of off the beaten path.

“A Silver River Story” is laced with tales told by the people who actually lived them. Silver Springs, at the head of the Silver River, is known for the invention of underwater filmmaking and Glass Bottom boats. Four friends narrate this film. These ambassadors for nature have been driving boats at the Springs for over fifty years each. Their stories of wildlife such as deer and alligators, and their day-to-day experiences show the audience a unique view of this beautiful and wild river as well as the problems that face the river today.

The American dipper is North America’s only aquatic songbird. Photographer and conservationist Mike Forsberg fell in love with the American dipper on a college fishing trip. After learning about these birds unique behaviors of dipping and diving underwater, he set out on a mission to document their natural history. This included photographing their behavior above water and below. This film follows Mike on his quest to photograph the American dipper diving underwater in the Poudre River in Colorado and will introduce you to a lifelong birder, retired school teacher, and ex-Harley rider Steve Den who helps Mike along the way.

The powerful call of the humpback whale fills our oceans in a way our species will never understand. A Voice Above Nature explores the surface of the seas in a way never seen before to reveal a not-so-silent-killer. Through the voice of a whale guide, biologist and captain, we hear about the whales and then feel the problem. The noise pollution we are creating in our oceans and forcing upon these animals. Can we respect the silence they need to survive?

Claver Ntoyinkima, a native park ranger, shares the secrets of Nyungwe National Park in Rwanda as he guides us through the forest. With almost 300 bird species, over 1,000 plant species, and dozens of large and small mammals, Nyungwe is one of the most biodiverse places in the world. Twenty-five years after the devastation of the Rwandan Civil War, the park is now one of the bestconserved montane rainforests in Central Africa. As Claver walks through the forest we uncover the origins of his conservation values and the history of an ecosystem that survived one of Rwanda’s darkest periods.

Andone Lavery and her team of scientists and engineers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution set out to reveal Earth’s largest, yet least-known habitat on our planet--the Ocean Twilight Zone, an ocean layer 600 to 3,200 feet below. It contains the greatest concentration of life on Earth, masses of unique and often bizarre inhabitants critical for making our planet habitable. But as nearshore fisheries decline, commercial fisheries are beginning to set their sights to these depths, so Andone and her team are racing to understand this unique habitat before it’s too late. What they find surpasses their wildest dreams.

Cast out by his pack, a young wolf has to face his destiny alone and try to survive in a world reigned over by Man. From the forests of Romania to the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean, he heads off in search of a new territory, a new pack and a new family. This is the incredible story of Slava, the wolf. This film tells also the story of a wolf in the Anthropocene. That of a 21st century wolf, who adapts to the world’s new rules. A wolf who constantly comes up against Man. Faced sometimes with his brutality, his constructions, his roads, his factories. This documentary, based on real facts, directed by Vincent Steiger, will bring us to think about the future of the wolf, but moreover, about the relationship our society has with “the wild”.

A year through the distant eyes of meteorological satellite Himawari-8 - a hypnotic stream of Earth’s beauty, fragility and disasters. 35786 km above Earth, travelling at more than 11000 km/h, Himawari-8, Japan’s most advanced meteorological satellite, observes the Eastern Hemisphere day and night. For one year we look through the eyes of the distant observer. From solstice to solstice, from pole to pole, from storm to storm we watch Earth’s beauty and fragility, weather’s wonders, forces and disasters - from space, it all looks miraculous.

From Oscar nominated filmmaker Rory Kennedy, ABOVE AND BEYOND: NASA’S JOURNEY TO TOMORROW shines a spotlight on NASA’s historic accomplishments in space, from the moon landing to Mars exploration to journeys to the outer edges of the solar system. More than a moving portrait of NASA’s accomplishments in space, the documentary also sheds light on the agency’s lesser-known area of focus and the vital role NASA has played in measuring the Earth’s health.

For many creatures in America’s expansive desert country, survival means being both tough, and creative. Live through a day, and a spine-chilling night, as the largest concentration of mammals in the world, 20 million strong, emerges and then returns to the bat cave.

The central stretch of the Mississippi River beats through the heart of America. Its song: country mixed with a bit of rock and roll. Here predators and prey work hard to protect their families from mighty floods, an underwater invasion and each other.

Witness the change of seasons in real time. In iconic locations with varied ecosystems, a diverse group of researchers and citizen scientists investigate how a wide range of organisms respond to the coming of spring.

With an ancestral lineage that goes back to the Dinosaurs the Anegada Rock Iguana once had a homeland that stretched for thousands of miles but today it is perilously close to extinction. Threatened by invasive species, climate change and land grabbing, the last 300 rock iguanas survive on just 28 sq kilometres of coral and limestone rock. It’s an almost impossible challenge but Mickey Young conservationist from the National Parks Trust, Kelly Bradley, scientist at Fort Worth Zoo and the community on Anegada have joined together in a last ditch effort to save the most endangered lizard in the world.

As a world-class wildlife cameraman, Gordon Buchanan is uniquely qualified to present the series. The fresh insight he gains by watching on-board footage from animals he has spent his life filming is revelatory; his frustrations and joy are genuine. Gordon is a light-hearted but expert guide, humorously sharing his attempts to persuade animals to wear their cameras and always contagiously excited at seeing the results. Gordon is a wonderful communicator whose aim is to share the wonders of nature and uncover the secrets yet to be told.

The Republic of the Marshall Islands was once the testing site for some of the biggest nuclear weapons ever made by the United States. Today, the impacts of those tests are still felt by the people who call these islands home. Acclaimed Marshallese poet and activist,Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner, explores the nuclear testing legacy of her country through the legends and stories of one particular island that houses a dark secret.

As the world prepares to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first manned lunar landing one of our greatest achievements ever - Emmy and Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Tom Jennings uses his signature style of first-person storytelling to create an immersive account that spans the full sweep of NASA’s Apollo Space Program, including all 12 crewed missions. In APOLLO: Missions to the Moon, newly transferred film and never-before-heard audio recordings recount the United States’ remarkable journey to land on the Moon before 1970. The missions are experienced not from modern-day retrospective but through TV coverage, radio broadcasts, home movies, NASA film and never-before-heard Mission Control audio. Primary source media offers a raw and genuine look at how the Apollo missions were presented to the public and what this historic program means to us today and for our future. APOLLO: Missions to the Moon is not just a film; it’s an experience.

Adventurer Steve Backshall is on a mission to explore the Arctic at the most dangerous time of year - the spring melt. It’s an undertaking that has never been attempted before. Assembling a team of experts, the epic journey begins on the east coast of Greenland. Their aim is to kayak across the world’s largest fjord. The Arctic is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the planet. Steve wants to understand how the rising temperatures are affecting the environment, wildlife and people. Paddling through the sea ice, they will be on alert for vast icebergs and hungry polar bears.

A world of praying mantis and other insects as a mirror of ourselves with drops of poetry, mystery and premonitions.

Artifishal is a film about people, rivers, and the fight for the future of wild fish and the environment that supports them. It explores wild salmon’s slide towards extinction, threats posed by fish hatcheries and fish farms, and our continued loss of faith in nature. Salmon have long been an icon of wild, but in our rush to meet demand and mask the larger root environmental issues, we’ve forgotten the true value of wild. Ultimately the film sets two ideologies at odds, those who embrace the power of nature to heal and those who believe in a world that requires continued control. Hopefully the film leaves viewers wrestling with a disquieting question, have we reached the end of wild?

On the Jurassic Coast of Britain a remarkable 200 million year old fossil is discovered - the bones of an ichthyosaur - a giant sea dragon that ruled the oceans when the dinosaurs ruled the land. In this one-hour special for BBC One, Sir David Attenborough brings a passion project to the screen as he joins the hunt to bring this ancient creature’s story to life.

David Attenborough travels to the Jura Mountains in the Swiss Alps, to find out about one of the largest animal societies in the world, where over a billion ants live in peace. After following the lives of these incredible creatures and their dramatic fight for survival for a year, he is able to unravel the secrets of the Swiss super-colony...

Few places on Earth remain as wild and pristine as the Top End of Australia. It is a land that time forgot. A place with some of the richest wetlands and oldest rainforests where ancient people lived in harmony with this wild land and her beasts. The largest dinosaurs called this land home and left their foot prints in these ancient rocks, and one of their deadly relatives still lives there today. Join this epic scientific adventure with Tommy, our native Aboriginal guide, and venture through some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes, and travel deep into saltwater crocodile country.

Stripped across one week in October 2018 - Autumnwatch New England celebrated the natural phenomenon of the American Fall as summer ends and, in the vast northeast forests, 26 billion trees simultaneously erupt in a riot of colour, painting the landscape gold and red. With a mix of live ‘studio’ pieces from a central ‘hub’ location on Squam Lake in New Hampshire, and seasonally shot VTs, each programme brought the splendour of the season into living rooms across the nation. Presented by British naturalist Chris Packham and American travel journalist and PBS presenter Samantha Brown. The shows also included live wildlife sections presented by wildlife cameraman Bob Poole.

Ay Mariposa tells a story of three characters in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas whose lives are upended by plans to build a US-Mexico border wall. As the director of the National Butterfly Center, Marianna Trevino Wright has become a leader of wall resistance in the Valley. Zulema Hernandez, a life-long migrant worker, has been a dedicated advocate for all migrants, both wild and human-kind. And the butterfly fights a daily battle for survival in a landscape where most of its habitat is long gone and much of what remains lies directly in the path of the wall.

“Backyard Wilderness” takes viewers on a surprising journey into the natural wonders right outside our doors. The film follows young Katie and her family who, absorbed by electronics and their busy modern lives, are blind to the real-life spectacle all around them. Until, that is, a school project sends Katie outdoors and sparks her gradual discovery of a whole new world. Audiences experience her backyard come alive - ducklings diving out of trees, salamanders dodging traffic and coyote pups learning to hunt. The film reminds us that Wi-Fi is not the only connection that matters and that, sometimes, in ordinary places, you can uncover extraordinary things.

Dive headfirst into bear dens with the biologists studying how human development affects bear behavior. In 2011 Colorado Parks and Wildlife initiated a major research effort to address increases in human-black bear conflicts. A team of wildlife researchers led by Dr. Heather Johnson has spent the past six years investigating the factors driving those increases and the effects of expanding human development on bear populations. “If we want our native biodiversity here, if we want these large carnivores to be back on our landscapes, ultimately we’re going to have to figure out, how do we coexist? How do we share a single landscape?” - Heather Johnson, PhD, Lead Wildlife Researcher.

You thought they were far away, in the wild. You’re wrong. They’re here. The urban invaders! We created the cityscapes, brought human culture to nature, but there’s no way we can keep ‘them’ out. Wildlife is infiltrating our cities! They glide through our urban jungles, nest on our balcony and feel quite at home in our backyards. Many wild animals not only tolerate the presence of humans; they’re even drawn to us, attracted by our habits. No matter if they move about on legs or wings - raccoons, parrots, giraffes and many, many more have learned to adapt to, or at least ignore, the presence of humans with remarkable ingenuity.

The team starts their journey into the foothills of the Himalayas. Their mission to kayak the last unrun river in Bhutan - but there’s a reason it hasn’t been attempted. The river is relentless, and it takes all their skill to negotiate this gorge. Their greatest fears are realised when Steve falls out of his kayak. He is dragged underwater and fights for his life. A safety kayaker races to his rescue and saves Steve by throwing him a rope within seconds of him being dragged under. From here they still have 30km to paddle through before they complete their expedition.

In this series, biologist Patrick Aryee tracks down the biggest animals on Earth to reveal why in the natural world - size really matters. Travelling to Asia, the Americas and Africa, he gets eye to eye with Sperm whales, grizzlies and feasting Komodo dragons to explore why some creatures evolved into GIANTS - and how these big beasts play a crucial role in their habitats. Stepping back in time, Patrick also uncovers the colossal prehistoric ancestors of today’s giants - and learns how their great size was often their downfall. Combining animated graphics, stunning natural history footage - and nail-bitingly close encounters this series explores the challenges facing our megafauna today.

Real drama. Real Stories. The ultimate lion soap opera. Follow specialist wildlife camera operators, Nathan Pilcher, and Sam Davies as they base themselves right in the heart of Zambia’s Luwangwa Valley. Together they follow the lions, night and day, to bring us every twist and turn of what promises to be a tumultuous year for three dynasties of lions poised on the edge of collapse.

Join the charismatic scientists in the field, testing new theories and challenging the conventional ideas about cats. New approaches and new technologies are breaking new ground and allowing an intimate look at their previously hidden lives. This new age of discovery is revealing a there still so much to learn about the cat family. But this is also a crucial time for cat conservation; most are threatened, facing extreme habitat loss and conflict with humans. But some stories offer hope, Iberian lynx have bounced back from the brink, whilst unseen leopards and servals are now re-colonising human environments.

Connecting with local communities and leaders is an important component of many Explorers’ work. The National Geographic Society is working with Big Cats Initiative grantees to create films highlighting the impact of their efforts which are translated into local languages and distributed in-region.

Scanning the desert landscape of Mexico’s Baja California Sur, few people would imagine what crawls beneath the surface. But sure enough, this is the home of the Mexican mole lizard (Bipes biporus), one of the strangest creatures you’ll ever hope to see--and one of the region’s most ecologically important.

In Selinda, Botswana, lions had been hunted to near extinction but, thanks to conservation, the number of lions has grown from two to over 60. Witness an incredible and heartwarming story of survival through the eyes of the lions that beat the odds. Follow six cubs as they navigate the world and learn to hunt, socialise and survive in the now flourishing wilderness.

The film showcases how life on Earth evolved from a primordial free-for-all and the birth of simple cells to self-replicating cells that then transition into photosynthesis and the oxygen rich environment we have today. Using a mix of stunning high-resolution 3D animation and special effects we deliver the powerful story of how life on earth began 3.5 billion years ago. From the depths of space to the first drop of water, visitors are taken on a mysterious journey. A narrator guides visitors through each phase of Earth’s turbulent transformation from molten rock to oceans teeming with microbial life.

Eight years after the March 2011 disaster in northeastern Japan, experts continue to learn new truths about the devastating tsunami. At first, the tsunami was clear. But it soon turned dark and muddy. The black water turned out to be far more destructive and dangerous to people’s health than normal seawater. We examined the deadly risks of the massive “black tsunami.”

Deep in the heart of Liberia’s jungles, hundreds of chimpanzees were taken from the wild. Captured, bred, and infected with hepatitis, our closest animal relatives were to unlock the mysteries of human diseases. But what started in the 1970s as an ambitious medical experiment took deeper and darker turns through the decades. Gripping to the core, Blood Island tells the powerful story of the chimpanzees, their captors and the people still fighting to save them.

Wildlife documentary series, presented and narrated by David Attenborough, exploring the planet’s oceans.

Corals build themselves homes of limestone in the warm, clear, shallow seas of the tropics. Their reefs occupy less than one tenth of one per cent of the ocean floor, yet they are home to a quarter of all known marine species. They are complex, infinitely varied structures providing all kinds of homes for their many residents. There is fierce rivalry for space, for food and for a partner, but the reef is also a place full of opportunity. For those that manage to establish themselves, there can be great rewards.

In recent years, our knowledge of life beneath the waves has been transformed. Using cutting-edge technology, One Ocean takes us on a journey from the intense heat of the tropics to our planet’s frozen poles to reveal new worlds and extraordinary never-before-seen animal behaviours.

While making Blue Planet II, we have explored parts of the ocean that nobody has been to before, encountered extraordinary animals and discovered new insights into how life thrives beneath the waves. But we have also witnessed the profound effects of human activity. The oceans are changing faster and in more ways than at any point in human history and now, for the first time, we understand why. In this final episode, we uncover the impact that our modern lives are having on our best-loved characters from across the series, including devoted albatross parents unwittingly feeding their chicks discarded plastic and mother dolphins potentially exposing their newborn calves to pollutants through their contaminated milk. Scientists have even discovered that increasing noise levels may stop baby clownfish finding their way home.

The deep is perhaps the most hostile environment on Earth, at least to us - a world of crushing pressure, brutal cold and utter darkness. We have barely begun to explore it, and yet it is the largest living space on the planet. Scientists already think that there is more life in the deep than anywhere else on Earth.

Chris Packham, Liz Bonnin and Steve Backshall explore the health of our oceans and its wildlife, broadcasting thousands of miles from across the planet to find out how marine life is coping in the face of increasing environmental pressure. They are based in three different marine hotspots around the world in Mexico, Bahamas and on the Great Barrier Reef.

A medical science program targeting 6-8-year-olds who have started developing self-awareness and interest in their own bodies. It explores the beauty and mystery of the human body. Do you know how your life began? Like every other baby, your baby body formed in your mother’s womb. But through the whole body forming process, “chats” played quite important roles. But who chatted what? See what happens at a human life’s beginning and learn how miraculous a phenomenon the baby birth is.

Baby predators are born into a dangerous world. While meerkats have babysitters to rein in the misfits, the lion moms take care of their cubs together, even the ones that can’t keep up. Cheetah siblings learn to hunt as a team. But the little leopard takes his lessons alone. Meanwhile, the hyenas raise their young nearby--a little too close for comfort for the cats. The African savanna is wild and full of traps. Whether with a single, doting mom or communal care, these little hunters are in good hands. But there’s still a lot to learn for the pups and cubs that are...Born in Africa.

Borneo is one of the most biodiverse places on Earth. lts unparalleled profusion of life is the result of millions of years spent in the tropics - longer than anywhere else. lts varied habitats, from the world’s oldest tropical rainforests to some of its largest cave systems, have fuelled the evolution of the most bizarre and enigmatic wildlife on our planet. This is a realm of giant apes, pygmy elephants and air-breathing fish, where over 15,000 different species of plant grow. Borneo, Earth’s ancient isle, is a place quite unlike any other.

The sordid world of wildlife trafficking and poaching is orchestrated by ruthless crime syndicates. An unlikely group of heroes are rising up to do all they can to prevent and reverse these terrible offenses against the planet. Filmmaker Kerry David and her dedicated crew pursue a passion that takes them around the globe to meet the courageous women who are living on the frontline of this silent war; risking all to prevent Africa’s most vulnerable animals from becoming extinct. Breaking Their Silence will shine a bright and inspiring light on their intelligence, empathy, strength and stamina to invoke deeply passionate responses from viewers as they watch these women face and conquer insurmountable odds. A hopeful film created to inspire and motivate moviegoers, Breaking Their Silence will challenge everyone to become part of the solution, and arm them with the means to do so.

Wildfires are increasing in their frequency and ferocity worldwide - they consume forests and destroy lives. Is there a more effective way to fight them? Traditional fire management practices hold many answers. Controlled fires, which were widely banned by colonialist authorities, had long been used by indigenous peoples to maintain their land and forests and to protect their peoples from large-scale wildfires. Societies across the world will struggle to deal with the increasing impacts of climate change - at this crucial juncture in our humanity we need to listen, learn, respect and support indigenous traditional knowledge.

Cageless is a short film advocating for shark conservation by telling the personal encounters of leading shark conservationists Cristina Zenato and Jim Abernethy, as well as my own. In making shark conservation less about statistics and more about personal and emotional stories from people who have spent years diving and working with sharks, it makes the topic more approachable to the audience; regardless of if they have seen a shark for themselves, or if they previously believed the misconception that sharks are inherently aggressive animals. Cageless calls for the end of the fear of sharks, advocating for their protection instead.

The Cantabrian region is a magical, mysterious place with many secrets yet to be discovered. It’s a kingdom of forests, rough canyons, high mountains and amazing wildlife; filled with primeval landscapes where fantasy and reality blurs. Throughout the four seasons we will tell stories of the secret lives of our main characters; the brown bear, the wolf, the wildcat, the snow grouse, the salmon, solicitous ants and magnificent spiders and butterflies.

Catastrophic Risk is a product of the “Stories of Impact” documentary series which aims to advance our understanding of diverse intelligence on our planet -- whether it be human or machine. This research group explores the consequences and benefits of humanity’s quickly approaching co-habitation with artificial intelligence. They are aiming to open lines of communication and connect top researchers to combat the looming issues of environmental risk, exponential population growth, and biological warfare. It’s the first century one species has held the future of Earth in our hands, and scientists of all backgrounds are rapidly devising a game plan.

A recent expedition discovered a strange community of crocodiles living in a Gabonese cave system. The crocs survive in pitch darkness and hunt bats. Some of the crocs have bright-orange skin! Now, a second team goes in to find out if this is a new species. But it’s a mission impossible to access the crocs’ world and there’s no way of knowing what they might find

Filmed in 8K, Changing Our World is the panoramic 4-screen centerpiece of the Age of Humans exhibit in the newly-opened Deep Time Hall at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Each compelling story features a community responding creatively to the environmental challenges triggered by human actions - restoring oysters in New York Harbor, carbon farming in Texas, building green roofs and schoolyards in Chicago, addressing sea level rise in the Netherlands and Louisiana, and protecting marine life in Hawaii. By placing these contemporary videos in the National Fossil Hall, we connect climate changes of the past to the present.

Cameras in space tell stories of life on our planet from a brand new perspective. At a time when the earth’s surface is changing faster than ever in human history the view from space reveals its fragility: watch cities grow, forests disappear and glaciers melt. Satellite cameras are now an important tool with which to monitor the health of our planet. Behind every extraordinary image is a story. This is our home as we’ve never seen it before.

At first glance, Europe doesn’t seem a hot spot for major earthquakes - but the strong 2016 quakes in central Italy prove that the risk cannot be ruled out. This film examines the causes and possible consequences of the latest events. Europe has an unexpected advantage when it comes to studying earthquakes a detailed written history. Evidence of past events can help scientists with their discoveries today. From archaeology to space tech - every tool is needed to collect the data that could unlock the secrets of our restless planet.

In Senegal, West Africa, live a group of chimpanzees, led by an alpha male named David. He is surrounded by rivals who all want his crown, and are prepared to kill him for it. David will face brutal battles, have his world engulfed in flames and will have to pull off an extraordinary act of deception. In a story of power and politics, can David overcome the threats to his leadership and hold on to the alpha position long enough to sire a possible future heir to his throne?

An endangered, South American Marine Otter mother and her two pups act as a vehicle into a poetic exploration of the threshold between comfort and action. Through blending traditional blue-chip cinematography with a philosophical narration we use the smallest marine mammal in the world as a mentor to teach humans about trusting their internal compass and confronting difficult questions. From showing a caring mother, to a playful sibling bond, to the kelp forests that nourish their entire ecosystem, this film aims to build empathy for animals as complex beings with more depth than we give them credit for.

The world’s cities are growing at a faster rate than any other habitat on the planet. And while most of us imagine them to be concrete jungles devoid of nature, for animals of all shapes and sizes they are just a new habitat filled with new and surprising opportunity. From smooth-coated otters at home in Singapore and huge colonies of megabats in Adelaide to reticulated pythons living on the streets of Bangkok, experience our cities through fresh eyes - the eyes of the animals that live in them, and discover a wilder side to a world we think we know.

The extraordinary tale of a strong-willed mother tiger who risks everything to rear her young cubs in Ranthambore National Park, India. Krishna comes from a long line of queen tigers that have ruled over the lake territory for years. Of her three cubs, only one can inherit that throne and displace their mother at the same time. This is the powerful and true story of the rise and fall of a tiger family.

Barrier islands, like those in John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, act as buffers from storms. However, with storms comes trash, and these ecosystems are becoming littered with plastic pollution. An ocean cleanup company called 4ocean joins forces with officials from John Pennekamp State Park and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary to remove debris from this critical ecosystem.

The Floridan Aquifer. Quadrillions of gallons of crystal clear fresh water “spring” to the surface all over Florida and the southeast United States... although it is clear water, is it clean water? Is it safe to drink? What are the impacts of generations of agriculture and urbanization expansion? We follow technical diver, Jill Heinerth, and a team of explorers and scientists to find out. We talk to farmers and researchers about a sustainable future. We learn how essential the Aquifer is for millions of people and how we must all work together to keep it safe.

After one of the hottest years on record, Sir David Attenborough looks at the science of climate change, exploring its effects on both the human population and the natural world. Eminent climatologists and meteorologists examine the extreme weather conditions of recent years, which have seen unprecedented storms and catastrophic wildfires; as well as looking at the accelerating rate at which the world’s ice is melting; how rising sea levels are affecting coastal populations; and how deforestation is exacerbating the problem of global warming by adding to CO2 in the atmosphere. The film explores what is likely to happen if global warming exceeds 1.5 degrees and if major reductions in carbon emissions are not made in the next decade. Scientists also discuss innovations, technology and actions the world’s governments and industries can take to reduce emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change in the coming years.

Climb-It Change brings the worlds of conservation science and outdoor recreation together. This film tells the story of researchers Trevor Bloom and Matt Kneipp as they traversed and rock climbed the entire Rocky Mountain chain investigating the impact of climate change and increased wildfires on high elevation environments.

Scientists often look to animals to help us find answers about human evolution and our own cognitive tendencies. Sponsored by the Templeton World Charity Diverse Intelligences Grant, anthropology professor, Brian Hare, at Duke University strives to develop a tool to collaborate with other scientists to test the forces that drive animal psychology and discover new types of cognitive intelligence. He has dedicated his entire career to studying our closest relatives, the chimpanzee, and looks to man’s best friend in his book, The Genius of Dogs, to better understand humans by understanding natural selection in animals.

Every year, National Aquarium Animal Rescue cares for dozens of cold-stunned sea turtles after they strand on the shores of Cape Cod amid cold weather snaps. Often suffering from pneumonia and infections when rescued in Massachusetts, the turtles are transported to Baltimore for long-term treatment. Each turtle’s path through rehabilitation not only drives home the efforts of conservation efforts worldwide, but also helps connect staff, volunteers, and the public with the natural world, helping to inspire a new way to see the ocean and our connection to it.

A tremendous story for wildlife management, the Shiras moose was reintroduced into Colorado in the late 1970s. The species success has provided new tourism opportunities for wildlife watchers and sportsmen alike. Although moose are still a rare species to see, wildlife managers remain responsible for sustainable populations and striking a balance between wildlife and the public, each of whom use the land to survive.

More than a billion people around the world commute into cities each day to take advantage of the riches on offer, and they are not alone. The world’s wildlife is commuting too. Animals of all shapes and sizes move in and out of cities looking for food, shelter or to start a family. To make it, they must overcome the unique challenges the urban jungle throws at them. Get it right, and the secret to an animal’s success in this fast-changing world could be to keep one foot in the wild and one in the city, becoming a wild commuter.

Graffiti is a young horse full of promise. Mathias, his owner, is a junior horse riding champion for whom a great future is predicted. Their relationship is one of the keys to their success. Before a very important competition Mathias takes his horse to the Mont-le-Soie equine centre, which is part of the veterinary faculty of Leuven University. The purpose? To prepare the four-legged champion in the best possible way. And, starting today, to build a glittering future for it. To be precise, the vets remove stem cells from Graffiti, which they then cultivate in the lab and store. The idea is very simple. In the event of an injury, in the near or distant future, it will always be possible to retrieve these cells and subsequently treat the horse using its own tissue. There is no secret to reaching the top in horse riding, the rider and his mount must be in top condition. Imagine if the same procedure could be used on human champions...

The Congo River divides the heart of Africa creating creates two different worlds in the rain forest: Chimpanzees, gorillas and bonobos are living here. The primates in the north are at war, in the south they are at peace. Their different development is closely connected with the river which had a decisive influence on the region. To get a feeling of these primordial powers, Dirk Steffens journeys to one of the most active and dangerous volcanos on earth: the 3.500 meter high Nyiragongo. The look from high above into the earth’s impressive interior is fascinating even for the experienced traveler.

Jim Enote, a traditional Zuni farmer and director of the A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center, is working with Zuni artists to create maps that bring an indigenous voice and perspective back to the land, countering Western notions of place and geography and challenging the arbitrary borders imposed on the Zuni world.

Thirty years ago, a partnership between Archbold Biological Station and Buck Island Ranch inspired a new mission: cowboys and scientists working together to advance scientific discovery on a ten thousand acre working cattle ranch. Bridging this cultural divide has resulted in a series of transformative discoveries that have begun to reshape our misconceptions about agriculture, sustainability, and conservation in the 21st century.

Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean. One fifth of its territory is protected habitat for spectacular wildlife: from the bee hummingbird, the world’s smallest, its tiny nest and ravenous chicks filmed for the first time - to Cuba’s own nimble, deadly but threatened crocodile species, to Havana’s geckos that migrated from Africa; suicidal red land crabs that have to get to the sea to lay their eggs, lazy giant iguanas that go crazy in the mating season; and Cuban Boa constrictors and flower bats, sharing a pitch dark cave, hunting and avoiding each other by scent and echolocation. Thanks to the Cuban Revolution this is a wildlife paradise, but soon Cuba will have to change. Will there still be room for nature then?

It was a dreadful case of mistaken identity. European explorers confused them for ravenous cats, rats, wolves and weasels. But they were something completely unknown ... a curious band of marsupials with a taste for blood, bone and meat. Scores of different little predators with pouches live all across Australia. The lives of many are at risk. Introducing three of the strangest; the numbat, the northern quoll, the dibbler; and the strangers who want to keep them safe.

For eons, a one-of-a-kind population of killer whales has hunted chinook salmon along the Pacific Coast of the United States. For the last 40 years, renowned whale scientist Ken Balcomb has closely observed them. He’s familiar with a deadly pattern: as salmon numbers plummet, orcas starve. The most effective solution, says Balcomb, is getting rid of four federal dams on the Snake River, largest tributary to the Columbia, which was once the most productive chinook salmon river on earth. Studying whales is science. Removing dams is politics. Defiantly mixing the two, says Balcomb, has become the most important work of his storied career.

DEADLY DINOSAURS brings the past back to life using a blend of CGI, archive and thrilling experiments where dino myths are thoroughly busted. Was T rex really the deadliest dinosaur of all time?

Using science and extreme macro cinematography to reveal their world, DeBugged scales insects up to size, divulging qualities you never knew were there. Experience firsthand how bees make identical honeycombs, the competitive turf wars fought by dung beetles, and the everyday dangers of being a lion ant, among a host of other stories. Enter into a unique world only observable with the most technologically advanced equipment, going far beyond the scope of just seeing a bug on screen, DeBugged reveals nature’s curious adaptions.

DEEP LOOK is a science video series that explores big science by going very, very small, from KQED and PBS Digital Studios. We use macro photography and microscopy in glorious 4K resolution, plus original score to see science up close... really, really close. Through 20 3-to-5-minute episodes per year, our Deep Look team of producers, writers, editors, artists and composers seek to marry the rich cinematic tradition of blue-chip PBS science and nature documentary with the personal, question-driven short-form conventions of the typical popular YouTube science show.

Samira is a diving instructor who has been living in Gili Trawangan, Indonesia where she has also been learning about Coral Reef Conservation with the Gili Eco Trust. This short film was made for her little brother and his kindergarten class to explain the global importance of healthy oceans.

Traditional funerals have broken the cycle of life that can spring out of death. That’s why a cadre of conservationists and afterlife advocates in the Adirondacks are pioneering a new form of burial. They’re using a green cemetery as part of a greater conservation plan for the region. If they’re successful, the template could spread to other landscapes stressed by human activity, helping adapt them to the very modern problem of climate change.

The ancient rainforests of Australia are home to a bird like no other. Bertha, a giant, flightless cassowary, is on a mission to reproduce. But life here has never been so tough. In the face of rival females, feral predators and extreme weather, the future for Bertha, and the endangered cassowary is far from certain.

Discovering Rann showcases the unique landscape and biodiversity of Rann of Kutch. It contains shots of beautiful animals and birds and stands out due to the emphasis on showing the behaviour of wildlife and their unique adaptations to survive in the harsh desert ecosystem. It also shows the life and death struggles of a desert fox and how it uses its strengths to fight an eastern imperial eagle; the struggle of jackal as a scavenger; the impact of feral dogs etc so that we see the life of species in this harsh landscape from the perspective of wildlife conservation.

In “Dolphin Reef,” Disneynature dives under the sea to frolic with some of the planet’s most engaging animals: dolphins. Echo is a young bottlenose dolphin who can’t quite decide if it’s time to grow up and take on new responsibilities-or give in to his silly side and just have fun. Dolphin society is tricky, and the coral reef that Echo and his family call home depends on all of its inhabitants to keep it healthy. But with humpback whales, orcas, sea turtles and cuttlefish seemingly begging for his attention, Echo has a tough time resisting all that the ocean has to offer.

Disneynature’s feature film “Penguins” is a coming-of-age story about an Adelie penguin named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he’s targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after.

Diving Deep into Ocean Plastic Pollution brings awareness to the microplastic pollution crisis, and what we can do to slow the flow of plastic into the world’s ocean. Recent findings by the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Monterey Bay Aquarium Research institute indicate that microplastic pollution is not limited to the surface of the ocean but extends from the sea surface down to the sea floor.

Known as much for his storytelling as stunning cinematography, Mike deGruy filmed the oceans from the shallows to the very deep sea. In 2010 when the BP Oil Spill dumped 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, where Mike grew up, he became an enraged warrior. Tragically, he died in an accident just as he was about to do his most important work so his wife and filmmaking partner returned to the edit room to make a film that both celebrates his career but also inspires others to pick up what he was not able to finish.

An elegant, engaging and cinematic verite documentary series celebrating the deep emotional bonds between people and their beloved four-legged best friends. The series tracks six incredible stories from across the globe including Syria, Japan, Costa Rica, Italy and the US--each proving that the unconditional love one feels for their dog is a beautiful universal truth. Dogs takes us on an inspirational journey exploring the remarkable, perhaps even magical qualities that have given these animals such a special place in all of our hearts.

Filmed over two years, Dogs in the Land of Lions takes us into the heart of an African Wild Dog family. When lions kill her mate, a Wild Dog mother must suddenly raise two generations of pups all on her own. In this deeply intimate portrayal of motherhood, we witness the loyalty and selflessness that sets Wild Dogs apart from other large, social carnivores. The story is loaded with the jeopardy of survival in an unforgiving wilderness, yet the young dogs provide light-hearted moments, as they discover the world around them on their journey to independence.

More beautiful than butterflies, more spectacular fliers than hummingbirds, and with intriguing behaviour as complex as mammals or birds, dragonflies and damselflies are the ultimate insects. They’ve been flying around for hundreds of millions of years, crossing paths with dinosaurs before we mammals were even a twinkle in the eye of evolution, and are often described as “primitive” - which is simply wrong. Surviving on the planet for that long means being pretty special and this film shows just how special they are.

Experience the ocean from an entirely new point of view. Conservation International and Vision 3 present a new social virtual reality project, “Drop in the Ocean,” shrinks participants down to about 2 inches tall as they hitch a ride on a jellyfish to encounter the beauty and mysteries of the ocean - and the ugly reality of the plastic pollution crisis - just as sea life does every day. A 7-minute group interactive VR experience, it brings four participants together into an open, physical space, allowing full freedom of movement while creating an atmosphere of shared adventure and knowledge gathering.

Rollers and Diggers need dung to eat, attract the ladies, and to breed. In their quest they must sidestep predators while fighting off the competition. If they fail, their mafia legacy is dead.

Tait is a painted wolf, matriarch of one of the last great families of this endangered animal. She has ruled her dynasty for many years on the banks of the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe, keeping the peace within her sprawling family. But tensions are rising. Tait is growing old and her power is waning. One of her daughters, Blacktip, lives close by. Her own pack is growing fast and they are running out of space. There is only one way Blacktip can get what she needs by doing battle for her own mother’s lands.

The nature of our planet - its beauty, complexity and challenges - is bound to the elements. Geological marvels, spectacular weather, mysteries of the plant and animal kingdoms; all inextricably linked and shaped by Air, Land and Water. Each of the three episodes follows the thread of life, entwined with the corresponding element. Life-giving air; the building material that is land; omnipresent water: they all make up the nature of our planet.

The first episode explores the most inconspicuous of the Earth’s three habitats Air, or, the atmosphere. It is invisible, yet this element is of profound importance. We all know that without oxygen life is unsustainable. But the atmosphere has other lesser known attributes. Without it, the Earth would not experience weather events or have the moderate temperatures that enable liquid water, and life, to exist in the first place. Nor would we have protection against extraterrestrial dangers, like meteors or the sun’s lethal ultraviolet radiation.

The oceans, with their fluctuating water temperatures and global currents, also act as a driving force for local weather phenomena and global climate change. In addition, they provide an immense habitat for a countless variety of species. Some of the most important are microscopically small plants and bacteria. Under the right environmental conditions, they can be seen from space in one of nature’s most mysterious spectacles, the Algal bloom. The ‘bloom’ is a sudden mass reproduction of phytoplankton that changes the colour of vast bodies of water into a creeping, luminescent, blue-green expanse. Beautiful, but potentially deadly to large other marine life.

In the high slopes of the Andorran alpine ecosystem, Earthwatch scientists and volunteers are studying the effects of climate change on plants and wildlife to help manage this increasingly fragile environment. “EARTHWATCH | Wildlife in the Changing Andorran Pyrenees” chronicles one day in the life of that research.

Bimini Island in the Bahamas lies 48 miles from Miami and is an ecological wonderland. But for the past 17 years, it has been slowly eroded by a US-owned development. Much of the archipelago’s mangrove forests have already been destroyed to build luxury homes, a casino and a Hilton hotel. East Wells, Bimini’s only remaining pocket of pristine habitat, is the last hope for Biminites. This PSA was created for a public meeting between Biminites and their government. It features Dr Samuel Gruber who spent the last 17 years of his life fighting for Bimini.

Nearly all of the meat, eggs, and dairy we eat comes from the industrial system known as “factory farming.” This system destroys our environment and harms public health, and never before has humankind caused more suffering. Eating Animals spotlights the heroic farmers, whistleblowers, and innovators who are standing up, against all odds, to fight this system and provide a new way forward.

“Eclipse” takes you to Grand Teton Nation Park to view the 2017 total eclipse of the sun. This is an experiential documentary with observational tools to interact with. “Eclipse” is created from real a real volumetric scene shot on location during the eclipse. Whether you want to relive the 2017 eclipse or experience it for the first time this is about as close as you can get to the experience of witnessing a total eclipse short of being there in person.

On August 21, 2017, millions of Americans witnessed the first total solar eclipse to cross the continental United States in 99 years. While hordes of citizens flocked to the eclipse’s path of totality, scientists, too, staked out spots for a very different reason: to investigate the secrets of the sun’s elusive atmosphere. NOVA investigates the storied history of solar eclipse science and joins both seasoned and citizen-scientists alike as they don their eclipse glasses, tune their telescopes, and revel in the eclipse that spanned the continent.

Science Channel commemorated the one-year anniversary of the passing of one the greatest scientific minds the world has ever known, theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, with a two-hour special that explored his connection to Albert Einstein, and their enormous influence on our understanding of the Universe. Einstein’s general theory of relativity laid the groundwork for much of modern physics, including Hawking’s work on black holes and the Big Bang. Hawking’s landmark best seller, A Brief History of Time, introduced these theories in layman’s terms to a mass audience, catapulting Hawking to a level of science superstardom not seen since Einstein.

Elephants are the largest mammals ever to grace our Earth. There are thousands of them in Botswana’s Savannah. Their unusual sensitivity and their social bonds form the basis of their survival. But Africa’s elephants are heading for an uncertain future. Where their paths cross with those of humans, worlds collide and conflicts are anything but rare.

Winter in Yellowstone. Driving snow and temperatures 50 degrees below zero collide with spewing heat from subterranean forces, creating dramatic, otherworldly displays. Host Bill Pullman embarks on a journey over vast blankets of snow, through sparkling prisms of “diamond dust,” and across rivers warmed by geothermal springs. Marvel at the park’s wildlife and see how the area’s extreme conditions pose challenges even for animals that have evolved to survive its winters.

Yellowstone River is the longest undammed river in the contiguous 48 states, flowing with a wildness that is both violent and vital to the creatures that are drawn to its banks. From Yellowstone Lake, North America’s largest highelevation body of water, to the Missouri River, follow its nearly 700-mile journey over falls and through canyons into America’s heartland. See how Yellowstone’s bison, otters, coyotes, and thrill-seekers adapt to--and thrive in--these wild, untamed waters.

It’s the dawn of a bold new era in Yellowstone. Wolves have returned. The grizzly bear population is at an all-time high. The resurgence of these iconic predators shapes every aspect of life in this ecosystem - restoring an ancient balance between predator and prey. Their stories come alive through the eyes of “Blacktail,” a lone wolf searching for a pack, and alongside the legendary grizzly “Quad-Mom,” a one-of-a-kind matriarch defending her unmatched legacy. Over the course of a year in Yellowstone, go inside the unseen world of these tireless hunters - surviving, protecting their turf, raising the next generation - all while trying to stay at the top of the food chain.

Explore the fascinating evolutionary journey of the horse, from its tiny forestdwelling ancestor called the Dawn Horse to the modern steed. Encounter scientists unlocking the genetic basis of horsepower and decoding their emotional intelligence.

Walk alongside two of the planet’s best climbers as they attempt to summit Mt. Everest and neighboring Mt. Lhotse without supplemental oxygen. Travel with them through Everest’s grueling, oxygen-depleted “death zone” to experience elation at the awe-inspiring vistas at the summit - and glimpse danger and fear as the climbers experience the raw power of an avalanche. Only 175 people have climbed Everest without supplementary oxygen - fewer than have reached space. Do you have what it takes to reach the top?

Species are shaped by the challenges in their environments, yet they can also change their environments. When the environment changes, how much is evolution affected? This documentary explores how much niche construction - the process by which species alter their environments - can impact evolution, and consequently how much our own species is shaping our evolutionary path through the large-scale changes we’re making to our environments.

Geologist Colin Devey sets forth on a journey of discovery through the old continent to the most breathtaking landscapes and mysteries of European nature, searching for their origins. Enhanced by state-of-the-art animation, we delve into the old continent’s remotest past, transported back some 500 million years and more.

Very few humans have ever seen the mysterious brine pools in person, an alien landscape of underwater lakes so salty that they kill most fish who get too close. The brine pools, however, are also thriving ecosystems, host to many species, and with a unique microbiological makeup that makes them extremely valuable to study.

This is the breath-taking story of how animals on the high, central Andean plains have adapted to a world fired by volcanic heat and pinched by thirst and thin air.

An all-star team of professional and amateur mycologists, artists, foodies, ecologists, doctors, and explorers joined forces with time-lapse master Louie Schwartzberg to create Fantastic Fungi, the life-affirming, mind-bending film about mushrooms and their mysterious interwoven rootlike filaments called mycelium. What this team reveals will blow your mind and possibly save the planet.

With the majority of the global population now living in cities and towns we are more disconnected from nature than ever before, and we’re missing out on its healing properties. “Feeling Better’ reveals the proven health benefits of natural environments in a deeply personal and emotional exploration of the emerging science of nature therapy. With intimate interviews with both researchers and patients at the end of their life, the film questions what it means to be healthy and happy and emphasises the importance of revisiting those childhood memories of being outside and immersing oneself in nature.

2016 marked the 35th anniversary of the rediscovery of the black-footed ferret - a species previously thought to be extinct and gone forever from the Great Plains. The film digs into the complexity of endangered species management and presents one of the best conservation stories in the United States, posing the question, how far will we go to save one species?

Except, actually, it was the second time. The first movie filmed underwater was made by J.E. Williamson--and it’s been lost until now. See the film footage for the first time in decades, and hear the story of the making of “The Terrors of the Deep.” It’s a story too strange and horrifying to be fiction.

Over billions of years, planet Earth has become home to an amazing interdependent ecosystem, containing a dizzying variety of animals and plants. But how did life here begin? And does it exist anywhere outside of our solar system? We uncover the secrets of our world by tracking the evolution of the cosmos itself, from the Big Bang onwards. Follow scientists responsible for some of the major breakthroughs in understanding the origins of life and witness how their discoveries are fundamentally changing the way we perceive the universe.

An Indigenous Australian Documentary following the oldest surviving culture on earth, the Bininj people of the Aboriginals lands of Kakadu, who maintain a traditional life, as they have done so for over 65,000 years. We discover how the Bininj have continued to balance biodiversity in such an unforgiving landscape through following them as they hunt and forage in preparation for a great food festival. A celebration of the bounty that the land provides. As the planet is warming and destructive fires ignite across the globe can we learn from these ancient Firekeepers and their ability to harness fire, and what challenges do they now face keeping their culture alive with a rapidly changing world. This is a student film by Della Golding, first time filmmaker.

In this first ever 3D VR film shot aboard the International Space Station, National Geographic takes you on a remarkable journey to experience the astronaut’s perspective of our planet Earth. Fly side-by-side astronauts and experience the magic of weightlessness; glance back at Earth for a stunning view of our fragile blue globe hanging in the emptiness of space. The intimate reflections of four NASA astronauts guide the experience: Chris Hadfield, Mae Jemison, Mike Massimino and Nicole Stott, who combined spent nearly a year in space. Each shares a unique vantage the rest of us don’t have; a feeling of connectedness to the larger forces swirling our home planet.

In the warm waters of the Philippines lives a poisonous, shapeshifting predator. Flamboyant follows one young cuttlefish as she learns to hunt in a new home after a life changing encounter with a scuba diver. Will she learn the right skills to compete with another top and established predator?

The keepers are kept busy with the animals under their care. These animals, although some may haven’t completely lost their innate instincts, are unlikely to survive if released back to the wild. It’d be difficult for them to live in packs and find food on their own. Ultimately, the zoo may well be the new habitat that they must adapt themselves to live in.

Ghost Fleet follows a small group of activists who risk their lives on remote Indonesian islands to find justice and freedom for the enslaved fishermen who feed the world’s insatiable appetite for seafood. Bangkok-based Patima Tungpuchayakul, a Thai abolitionist, has committed her life to helping these “lost” men return home. Facing illness, death threats, corruption, and complacency, Patima’s fearless determination for justice inspires her nation and the world.

GIANT CARNIVOROUS BATS centers around unique documentation of rare and elusive false vampire bats, the biggest predator in the bat world. Dr. Rodrigo Medellin and National Geographic photographer Anand Varma team up to capture incredible never before seen bat behavior, captured with ground breaking imagery that reveals the bats’ hidden lives. The endangered Vampyrum spectrum and threatened Chrotopterus auritus inhabit trees and ancient Maya temples deep in southern Mexico. Rodrigo and Anand set out to find their roosts and document new behavior with cameras that can see what humans can’t.

Climate change, species extinction, plastics choking marine life, habitat loss and social conflicts caused by these crisis; Giving Nature a Voice has covered them all in a series of 20 minute documentaries produced from an African perspective. In northern Kenya East African filmmakers have documented how Samburu warriors are protecting the Grevy’s Zebra, whose population has fallen faster than any other mammal. In Uganda, they’ve followed anti-snare teams trying to stop bushmeat hunters from crippling the Kibale forest’s chimpanzees and on Mount Kenya they’ve joined climbers, farmers and glaciologists trying to understand why the mountains glaciers are dripping away.

With the threat of white-nose syndrome looming on the horizon, Glacier National Park biologists adventure deep into the backcountry to find out what species of bats live in the park and monitor any dangers to their populations.

The Wind Rivers slash across west-central Wyoming and are home to seven of the largest glaciers in the American Rockies. Many of the Wind River’s glaciers are hundreds of feet thick and supply major water systems on both sides of the continental divide. The glaciers of the Winds have been shrinking at an accelerated rate over the last forty years and glacial retreat could have significant effects on the local ecosystem and downstream farms and ranches.

In an entertaining journey to the quirkiest hoarders in the animal kingdom, the film shows squirrels’ amazing abilities to survive in extraordinarily diverse habitats: from cities to mountains, from deserts to rainforest, even in the Arctic. Some can fly, some can swim, some live in trees or underground, others love icy wastelands or burning sands.

A crack team hunts for an elusive 400-pound gorilla called Mussiru. They must get close to be accepted into his world. But it’ll take a journey to a distant land, wracked by war and turmoil, to find the holy grail they need to safeguard him... and the very rainforest itself.

The Philippines is an epicenter for marine biodiversity, with more than five million fishers relying on fish and fishery products as a source of food and income. Created by a team of National Geographic explorers, Grandpa’s Reef is a four-minute underwater virtual reality experience that follows a young Filipino girl’s quest to find and protect her grandfather’s reef.

Prior to European settlement, the Great Plains were home to enormous, thundering herds of bison and antelope. Wolves and grizzly bears thrived at the top of the diverse food chain in this vast, unobstructed landscape. It truly was the “Serengeti of the North American continent”. Pairing blue-chip wildlife behaviour with rangers, scientists and First Nations that are working on the front line of unique conversation practices, this film is a journey through one of the planet’s least known, most beautiful and most endangered ecosystems: the Northern Great Plains.

Great Bear Rainforest is the story of one of the rarest animals on Earth--the fabled all-white spirit bear--and its ancient forest home. Hidden from the outside world, the Great Bear Rainforest is one of the planet’s most exquisite and secluded wildernesses. On Canada’s rugged Pacific coast, it is the largest temperate coastal rainforest in the world and is home to indigenous First Nations peoples, who have provided stewardship of the forest for millennia. Embark on a remarkable journey into a land of grizzlies, wolves, sea otters, and humpback whales--and discover the secret world of the spirit bear.

The remarkable Wildlife of Greece’s Highlands and Islands: in “The View from the Gods”, pelicans, brown bears, Egyptian vultures, dung beetles, sheltopusiks and empusas show the variety of mountain wildlife, while the western rock nuthatch builds perfect bottle-shaped nests out of the bodies of insects! In “Surrounded by Blue”,two colour-changing specialists, African chameleons on land, cuttlefish under water, reveal remarkable hunting, mating and reproduction strategies. Endemic Milos Vipers spear migrating songbirds resting at rock pools, while in a valley on Rhodes Jersey Tiger butterflies coat the rocks and trees and Hardun lizards hoover them up.

When spring arrives on Alaska’s Katmai coast, it’s time for brown bears to emerge from their winter slumber. But this is no ordinary bear habitat - this is bear paradise: an unusual combination of rich food sources draws more Grizzlies together on its lush sedge meadows, extensive mudflats and rushing rivers than anywhere else on Earth. It makes Katmai the perfect place for bear biologist Chris Morgan to experience Grizzly behaviour up close.

Katmai’s extensive sedge meadows are like a lifeline for brown bears at a time when food is scarce for them. They attract Grizzlies in unusually high numbers, forcing them to congregate and tolerate each other in close proximity. It’s a challenge for these notorious loners ... and an opportunity for bear researcher Chris Morgan. Able to observe them at close range, he witnesses bear society in full swing. Entertaining, informative and gripping, Chris Morgan takes us on a thrilling excursion into the world of Katmai’s brown bears.

The Guardians of the Kingdom VR is an interwoven story of two mothers -one human, one whale -- and the connections that bind them. It is the story of reconciliation between a giant who was once hunted and the people of the Kingdom of Tonga. Witness the inspiring story of a richly vivid and dramatic legacy inherited by a mother in the waters of the Kingdom of Tonga and passed on to future generations. A kingdom once torn apart is now reconnecting the creatures from the land and sea for a common future together in the shared place they call home.

A thousand years ago in the wild lands of the north lived a special little girl, Gudrun The Viking Princess. The trees and animals of the forest were her friends and playmates.

Gwala Rising in the Bwanabwana Islands depicts the revitalization of traditional conservation practices in the islands of Papua New Guinea. The community of Anagusa Island is combating the effects of climate change and protecting the coral reefs they rely on using gwala: the traditional practice of setting aside a reef or forest area to allow the ecosystem to recover. Gwala is helping the community of Anagusa Island prosper - empowering men and women with improved access to food and livelihoods.

Gyamo - the female snow leopard and her 2 cubs haven’t been seen since the big male snow leopard appeared. The father son wildlife filmmaker duo Mike and Gautam return to the same mountain to pick up their trail and find the cubs. Exploring this amazing landscape they discover there are many challenges that surround this endangered cat. Scientists estimate that 4500-10,000 snow leopards remain in the wild but their exact numbers are still not known. Even before the cats can be understood, its landscape is changing under the impacts of development and tourism. To truly understand the snow leopard it is imperative to understand the people who share its home and find solutions to protect this elusive cat and its habitat before it disappears forever.

Hidden Pacific is a pioneering film that profiles some of the Pacific Ocean’s most beautiful islands and marine national monuments -- breathtaking places that will leave audiences with a deep-felt appreciation for the beauty of nature untouched by civilization. The storied histories of Palmyra, Midway and other atolls - from the WWII Pacific Theater to their present environmental recovery and ecological research initiatives - provide the platform from which the film explores a diversity of science and human stories. Hidden Pacific is produced by Tandem Stills + Motion, in cooperation with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and affiliated organizations.

Hidden Rivers explores the rivers and streams of the Southern Appalachian region, North America’s most biologically rich waters. The film follows the work of conservation biologists and explorers throughout the region, and reveals both the beauty and vulnerability of this aquatic life, and how many people are finding ways to protect it.

Wild horses are caught between an incredibly polarized and emotionally charged debate aiming to write their future in the American West. The result of this debate is a legal stalemate causing wild horse numbers to continue rising well beyond unsustainable levels, causing irreversible damage to public lands. Horse Rich and Dirt Poor follows ecologist Charles Post as he explores America’s pressing wild horse issue and the affects it has on the surrounding ecosystem.

Why are itchy lice so tough to get rid of and how do they spread like wildfire? They have huge claws that hook on hair perfectly, as they crawl quickly from head to head.

To help struggling coral reefs around the world, an international team of scientists has committed to planting more than a million new colonies of coral by 2021. But first they have to grow them. Meet Valerie Chamberland from SECORE, and learn how a growing group of scientists are performing the equivalent of in vitro fertilization for corals to help restore the planet’s coral reefs.

This series explores Australia, isolated from all other lands for 45 million years and therefore unique in its wildlife. Despite Australia’s relatively small population, the human impact on wildlife has been dramatic. In this episode we meet Australia’s natural history success stories and those being left behind as the continent undergoes rapid change. In busy city parks we witness how possums, solitary marsupials, have taken to mass-sharing of trees while coldblooded eastern water dragons are demonstrating evolution in overdrive. In a timescale of roughly 150 years, as the city has risen around them, they have become metropolitan dragons; genetically different and twice the size of their wild cousins.

Human Nature is a provocative exploration of CRISPR, a scientific revolution giving us unprecedented control over the building blocks of life. Where do we draw the line between curing disease and designing our children? How will this new power change our relationship with nature and evolution? To begin to answer these questions we must look back billions of years and peer into an uncertain future.

On 12 September 2015, a 30-ton humpback whale breached and landed on Tom Mustill and his friend Charlotte Kinloch as they paddled a sea kayak in Monterey Bay, California. Incredibly, both survived the incident, but the neardeath experience haunted documentary maker Tom and left him wondering if the whale was deliberately trying to hurt them. To find the answer, Tom returned to California in 2018 to investigate. Tom meets those who have survived similar hair-raising encounters and the experts who know the whales best. What he discovers raises far bigger questions, not just about what happened that day but also about our relationship with whales and their future alongside us.

Helmeted Hornbills are being poached to extinction for their coveted ivory-like casques. But these birds are treasures of avian biology - dedicated mates that risk their lives to raise their young, and denizens of the wildest rainforests left in Southeast Asia. Conservationist Yoki Hadiprakarsa and photographer Tim Laman are on a mission to tell the story of this ancient bird before it is too late.

“Every one of us is a zoo in our own right,” according to award-winning science writer Ed Yong, whose book I Contain Multitudes is the basis for this whimsical and enlightening series of short films of the same name. With the aid of animated microbes and conversations with scientists, Ed takes viewers on a curious and entertaining journey through the tiny yet immense universe of microbes that live on and within larger creatures, including ourselves. The microbiome represents nothing short of a new way to think about life--one that emphasizes teamwork over competition.

On March 9, 2015, Solar Impulse II took off from Abu Dhabi on one of the greatest aviation adventures of our time: the first solar-powered flight around the world. Together with a team of brilliant engineers, two visionary pilots-Bertrand Piccard and Andre Borschberg--designed and built Solar Impulse from scratch, even though top airplane manufacturers told them it would be “impossible to control.” The performance of the plane was balanced on a knife-edge, demanding near-perfect weather conditions and hour after hour of vigilant, skillful piloting. NOVA captures an insider’s view of the Solar Impulse pilots and ground team as they experience moments of hair-raising crisis, remarkable endurance, and ingenious problem-solving.

Join wildlife photographer Jake Davis in the wilderness as he reflects on time, nature, and the magic of encountering animals in the wild.

This nature documentary shows the discovery of a rare and unique snake (viper) called the Spider-Tailed Horned Viper and the amazing farmer who made it happen. On the journey to discover this snake, the production team met up with a farmer named Mahmoud, and sought his help in finding the rare viper. During the making of this documentary, some interesting things happened and the destiny of Mahmoud changed! The Spider-tailed horned viper is the world’s most evolved viper. No other viper in the world has a tail structure as evolved as this one. This viper, using its tail like a puppet master, hunts insect eating birds. Its habitat is only in Ilam province in Iran.

82-year-old Willem bought a remote potato farmfield back in 1980 and transformed it into a butterfly paradise. For almost 40 years he works the land with a shovel and scythe in order to preserve the butterflies. Willem’s paradise has become one of the most important habitats in the region for these fluttering beauties. But Willem has a problem. Due to an overload of nitrogen in the air, Willem’s flower-rich butterfly paradise gets slowly driven away by a monoculture of grass. Butterflies that used to be normal just a few decades ago are rare these days, or have completely disappeared.

Cages, speed-breeding, fear-based training. Blatant animal abuse is hiding just below the surface of the wildlife tourism industry.

From the front line of the Camp Fire, the deadliest wildfire in California history, NOVA tells the stories of residents who had to flee for their lives during the 2018 fire season. Scientists race to understand what’s behind the rise of recordbreaking megafires across the American West take to the forest, and even a fire lab, in search of answers. They investigate how forestry practices, climate change, and the physics of fire itself play a role in the dramatic increase in wildfires in recent decades.

Untamed beauty has drawn Cory Trepanier to paint the Canadian Arctic for over a decade. Preparing for a touring exhibition in Washington DC, he heads back on an expedition to complete his vision. For 9 weeks, Cory travels with Inuit elders; paddles the most northerly canoe route in North America; walks in the footsteps of early explorers; voyages the Northwest Passage and deeply connects with a changing land. With the future of the North at a crossroads, can a simple stick and some bristle paint the Arctic into the hearts and minds of others, so far away?

What does it feel like to be face to face with a giant manta ray in the middle of the Pacific Ocean? Filmed on the ground-breaking VRTUL rig in 3D 360, Blue Planet VR transports you under the waves to experience an incredible dive in 6K. In Mexico’s Revillagigedo National Park join marine biologist and conservationist Erick Higuera to encounter majestic mantas and a curious pod of bottlenose dolphins. Take a deep breath.

In 2016 filmmaker/photographer Pete McBride and writer Kevin Fedarko set out on a 750-mile journey on foot through the entire length of the Grand Canyon. From the outset, the challenge was far more than they bargained for. More people have stood on the moon than have completed a continuous through hike of the Canyon. McBride and Fedarko took a sectional approach, achieving a feat that many adventurers have taken decades to complete. Others have lost their lives trying. But their quest was more than just an endurance test - it was also a way to draw attention to the unprecedented threats facing one of our most revered landscapes. Throughout their passage, McBride and Fedarko encountered an astonishingly diverse and powerful landscape, rich in history, that is now facing perhaps the gravest crisis in the 100-year history of the Grand Canyon National Park. The threat is made stark when they encounter an organization of Navajo women fighting a billion dollar proposed tram project to be built on sacred ground. Directed by Pete McBride and produced by the award-winning team at Insignia Films, INTO THE CANYON is a story of extreme physical hardship that stretches the bonds of friendship and a meditation on the timeless beauty of this sacred place. It is an urgent warning about the environmental dangers that are placing one of America’s greatest monuments in peril and a cautionary tale for our complex relationship with the natural world.

In the summer of 2017, a team of scientists led by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution ventured a thousand kilometers off the coast of Brazil to explore the seafloor around a little-known cluster of islets called St. Paul’s Rocks. One of those scientists, Diva Amon, a deep-sea biologist from the Natural History Museum of London, describes what it’s like to venture into a dark, unknown world 1,000 meters (3,280 feet) below the surface--and why this type of research is key to understanding and protecting our oceans.

The Okavango River Basin provides a vital source of water to about 1 million people, the world’s largest population of African elephants and significant populations of lions, cheetahs and hundreds of species of birds. However, this once unspoiled oasis is now under siege due to increasing pressure from human activity. From National Geographic Documentary Films, Into the Okavango chronicles a team of modern-day explorers on their first epic four-month, 1,500mile expedition across three countries to save the river system that feeds the Okavango Delta, one of our planet’s last wetland wildernesses.

Irish underwater cameraman Ken O’Sullivan sets out on a series of voyages over two years from Ireland’s coast into the deep waters of the North Atlantic to try and find some of the largest animals ever to have on planet Earth, blue and sperm whales and attempt to map their migration routes. His journeys take him out to the edge of the continental shelf and 3,000 metres down into dark, cold Atlantic waters in search of life cold water coral reefs to see how life in the surface ocean waters is affected by what happens on the deep sea bed.

“It’s Good Business: Moving Beyond Conservation” is a short documentary that explores the antiquated idea that capitalism must be at odds with the health of the environment in order to profit. While we all want to protect our planet, current models of environmental conservation are failing. It’s clear that we desperately need a different approach to protecting nature. In 1990’s Mexico, many believed rampant deforestation was simply the cost of doing business. But one man saw an alternative, and launched what would become the most successful biodiversity program in history: CONABIO. This documentary analyzes what made CONABIO successful, where other conservation efforts have so dramatically failed.

Animal Planet and The Dodo, the #1 animal brand on digital, teamed up to produce DODO HEROES which features inspiring stories of animals from around the world in dire need, and those who go to unimaginable lengths to help them. Each episode documents the undeniable bonds that are forged between these animals and the courageous men and women who protect and save them. The series explores the personalities and emotions of both humans and animals while highlighting their unique connection. Featured stories document true heroes and the animals they save.

Veteran wildlife photographer Steve Winter and cameraman Bertie Gregory capture the remarkable lives of Jaguars in the Pantanal of Brazil. Weeks spent navigating remote waterways in pursuit of these infamously private predators pays off in dividends - Steve and Bertie fall in with a mother jaguar as she teaches her cub survival while a determined male jaguar named Scarface dives headfirst into the river to tackle the deadliest of opponents - 6-foot long caiman. Clever capybaras and playful giant otters stick with their family members to avoid being jaguar dinner. Jaguar vs Croc is a marvel of animal behavior that has rarely, if ever, been captured on camera.

In the Maldives, locals have depended upon one resource, skipjack tuna, for sustenance and exportation since 650 B.C. Maldivians have sustainably fished this species in a traditional manner throughout history; however, external forces also target this resource with less sustainable practices. Modern, commercial purse seine tuna fishing has increasingly threatened fisheries and the way of life that they support. Nonetheless, against rising odds, the Maldivian tuna fleets continue to head out at dusk, with their bows aimed to the trails of tuna schools that weave through the dotted islands of Laamu Atoll. The documentary highlights the intricate skill and relationship between the fishermen and their practice as well as hardships that accompany this ancient occupation. The observational documentary allows what could be a last look into this way of life, which is sustained by a resource that swims around the world and sinking islands at the hands of climate change induced rising sea levels.

For 15 years, Mozambique was engulfed in a brutal civil war that devastated human and wildlife populations alike. Now, in part by focusing on empowering and educating women, Gorongosa National Park has become a model of successful conservation efforts. In this short film, follow elephant expert Dominique Gonçalves as she shares the powerful ways the park is working with local communities and gaining a new generation of brave women rangers and scientists.

Few creatures have revealed as many biological secrets about the workings of life on Earth as the backyard lizard known as the anole. Join biologists Neil Losin and Nate Dappen on their yearlong examination of this humble but fascinating creature and its remarkable powers of adaptation. It’s a whirlwind journey that takes us from Caribbean rainforests to high-tech labs to the city of Miami, leading to incredible discoveries about the laws of the lizard.

“Leafcutters” is an unusual collaboration with millions of wild ants. Focusing on four supposedly unique human traits - language, ritual, war and art - the narrative aims to blur the boundaries between culture and nature. In We Rule, the ants carry language in keeping with their dominant status in the forest. The Chosen is a ritualistic procession where the ants bring flowers to lay at the feet of their golden idol. In War, two colonies of the same species are locked in a merciless battle. Antworks - are ants indifferent to the aesthetics of the leaves they carefully select, cut and carry home?

We inhabit a world in motion, but much of that world remains hidden because it happens too quickly or too slowly for humans to perceive. Take, for example, the nearly instantaneous attack of a velvet worm’s slime cannon, or the almost imperceptibly slow shuffle of a penguin colony as individuals adjust to stay warm. Lens of Time invites viewers to time travel into the secret realms experienced by other organisms. Each episode is guided by scientists who have developed methods and technologies that allow them to capture and study stunning behaviors and structures that would otherwise remain invisible.

When a vicious fight with the Male leopard results in her cub’s death, Malika must reinvent herself after the loss. In the battle to survive she faces dangerous enemies and must hunt way outside her comfort zone. Her desperation inspires ingenious new ambush techniques and each success slowly rebuilds her confidence till she has the courage to face her enemies and regain her former glory.

When Muli, a wild tiger in Sumatra, is rescued by the Tambling Wildlife Nature Conservation, she brings together scientists, conservationists and poachers in this story of survival. Muli is one of 400 Sumatran Tigers left in the world. The entire tiger population is on the brink of extinction because of poachers who sell their skins and bones, and the illegal market which consumes them. As one of his last films, this project is in loving memory of Alan Rabinowitz (1953-2018) and his passion towards a healthy stable world for us and future generations.

Climate change is shifting ecological baselines in the fjords of Chilean Patagonia. In 2015, a harmful algae bloom closed southern Chile’s fisheries and caused the largest mass die-off of baleen whales in modern history. Scientists used time-lapse cameras to monitor decomposition and scavenging on the whale carcasses for 1 year as they were recycled back into the Patagonian ecosystem. However, the same changes that contributed to the whales’ death are making local subsistence fishing communities’ way of life both unviable and unsafe, placing their cultural identity and food and economic security at high risk.

Extreme habitats can be found all around the globe. In high places or low, in humidity or drought, in hot or cold: meet the resident species that are pushed to their limits to survive and thrive. There are swimming sloths, birds that breed on volcanoes and bear monkeys with long fur to cope with the cold climate while feeding in Sri Lanka’s highest botanical gardens. We’ll discover the fascinating solutions that animals have developed to survive. Because in the end, it all comes down to evolution’s hard truth: adapt or die.

Orang-utans forage early in the day inside the rainforests of Sumatra - before the heat becomes unbearable. When the sun reaches its zenith all activity stops and the primates retreat to their shady nests below the canopy to wait out the heat. While orang-utans avoid the midday sun others are drawn to heat; some animals seek the hottest places on Earth - volcanoes. Each morning, volcano birds gather at the foot of Tavurvur volcano to excavate the hot ash - each one will lay a single egg. No need to sit on those eggs - the volcano’s warmth will do the job for them!

The highest and the lowest places of our planet also offer niches where life thrives. High up in the Alps, animals have developed particular strategies to survive. Short, hot summers follow long, hard winters - seasonal extremes that test the endurance of Alpine inhabitants. In spring, newborn chamois must learn quickly to manoeuvre the steep stony cliffs and slopes. Winter stays for eight month in these altitudes. Deep snow, harsh storms and minimal food test the chamois’ survival. But they are alpine specialists - masters of the mountain. For them there is only one major threat - the avalanche. This overwhelming force of nature will take the life of every animal in its path - and in turn provide food for hungry ravens and golden eagles.

Soar above the erupting Old Faithful geyser, the cascading Lower Falls, and the brilliant Grand Prismatic Springs as we explore life in Yellowstone National Park through the eyes of its winged creatures. From an American dipper’s frozen dinner to a sage grouse’s mating display to a bald eagle’s struggle to feed her eaglets, see how the birds of Yellowstone survive and thrive over a course of a year.

When lesser prairie-chickens mate, the action starts early. Before dawn in April and May, males stomp their feet in the grass like they’re warming up for a track meet. As they dance, they inflate bright red air sacs on the sides of their necks and raise feathered neck tufts. With these displays and a chorus of warbling squawks, the males chase and fight each other in an attempt to win the right to mate with as many females as they can. These impressive performances have made the birds the stars of an annual lesser prairie chicken festival each April-and the poster species for an imperiled ecosystem.

This whimsical digital series uses an irreverent tone and fun animated graphics to draw memorable connections between seemingly unrelated ideas. Customdesigned for the vertical IGTV platform and thoroughly researched, Linked explores the wide-ranging and surprisingly-connected topics featured in National Geographic’s longest-running series, Explorer, and reminds us that everything is connected.

The Marsh Pride of Kenya’s Masai Mara is in a unique situation in its history. Abandoned by the adult males, just two adult lionesses, Charm and her cousin Sienna, are left to feed and protect their eight young. The future of the whole family rests entirely on the shoulders of these two mothers. They and their cubs will face the great perils of the African savannah - rampaging herds of buffalo, rival lion prides, the constant menace of marauding hyenas. And, in a fateful turn of events, a clash with humanity.

It’s a big world out there...it’s even bigger when you’re only 2 inches tall! Ash’s football juggling mishap sends the family to check on a nearby robin’s nest. Ash continues to practice on the journey, but will her skills be good enough in time to save the robins from a furry threat?

Life on Earth is a miracle and an enigma. The great mystery of its origin has beguiled the human mind since we developed the capacity for wonder. But on the eve of the 21st Century that mystery took on a new dimension. The discovery that there are Earth-like worlds outside our solar system confronts scientists with a new question: How many more miracles might be out there hidden among the stars.

Our planet is bursting at the seams. Every day on Earth, around 30 volcanoes violently erupt. By meeting the people and wildlife that live alongside the planet’s volcanoes, we reveal the ways in which volcanoes affect life on Earth. Despite their destructive nature, volcanoes are the life givers of our planet. At the heart of this story is a ground-breaking expedition to one of the world’s most active Volcanoes, searching for life forms inside the volcano that tell us more about the origins of life on Earth as well as the likelihood of finding life elsewhere in our universe.

LOBSTER WAR is an award-winning feature film about a climate-fueled conflict between the United States and Canada over waters that both countries have claimed since the end of the Revolutionary War. The disputed 277 square miles of sea, known as the Gray Zone, were traditionally fished by US lobstermen. But as the Gulf of Maine has warmed faster than nearly any other body of water on the planet, the area’s previously modest lobster population has surged. As a result, Canadians have begun to assert their sovereignty, warring with the Americans to claim the bounty.

Each and every tiger is important and that’s why we need to find Sultan. This film follows the story of Sultan, the up and coming dominant tiger of Ranthambore Tiger Reserve who vanished suddenly. Father and son wildlife filmmakers, Mike and Gautam, had been following and filming him since he was a cub and are now trying to put the pieces together to solve this mystery. More than 12 tigers have gone missing in Ranthambhore between 2012 and 2017. Young tigers who go missing are usually thought to have been poached or just lost forever. But the story is much more complicated.Trackers on ground have proved that tigers leave the protected territory of national parks to walk great distances in search for new territory. Tigers know no borders and young sub adult tigers must walk hundreds of kilometres to find a new home, prey and a new mate. The film looks at broader issues of conservation of tigers and the different efforts being made towards it in India through the story of Sultan.

Off the coast of Central Africa lies an isolated island, covered by primeval rainforest and inhabited by a greater variety of species than nearly any other place on Earth, this terra incognita is called BIOKO. The ruler of this realm is one of the world’s least known primate species, the drill. We follow Motuku, an alpha male, and his family. The newest member of the group is little Sipoti. Over the next few years he will learn the intricacies of the drill society-something researchers will be learning with him.

M6NTHS is a short film about an animal in captivity, longing for the outside. An animal who shares with us the ability to dream, who is intelligent, curious, social and sensitive, and in whom we can clearly recognize a soul. An animal who can live up to ten years in the wild but only six months under our care. Without shock effects, voice over or presenter, this visceral film will change your view on pigs forever. It is the pig himself, who invites the audience to see the world through his eyes.

Kenya is one of the most diverse countries in the world. It boasts some of the most incredible wildlife spectacles on the planet. But with the human population set to double in the next 25 years, wildlife and natural resources are already feeling the pinch. What can be done to ensure the future of wildlife in Kenya? In Mabingwa, we meet four young men from four different corners of the country. We see their daily struggles to make ends meet and to relate to their country’s natural heritage. Some want access to the ecosystems but are denied. Some are too poor to even bother. Some have turned their lives around because of their involvement in conservation. These four young people exemplify how starting a simple discussion can change the course of a life - and a country, forever. Mabingwa is the Swahilli word for “Champions.” The youth of Kenya must be the champions for wildlife if it is to survive.

Volcanic activity has shaped Iceland’s rugged northern wilderness like no other place on earth; both above and below water. How do animals survive in this harsh terrain? What does it take to live among glaciers, deserts and volcanoes? And how do you cope with waters near boiling and close to freezing at the same time? These are the challenges of living on an island of extremes.

Magical Land of Oz is an epic three-part series exploring Australia’s highest snow peaks to the depths of the wild southern seas; featuring its last population of numbats to its largest aggregations of giant cuttlefish. In this episode we set out to understand why rare and fantastic marine species are drawn to the coasts of Australia and discover that the country’s three surrounding oceans - the Southern Sea, the Pacific and The Indian Ocean create a unique environment for ocean voyagers of all types.

Across rippled dunes, in the wind-swept grasslands of the southern Kalahari, towers a magnificent Camelthorn. It has stood on this spot for two centuries. From the colony of Sociable weavers, to larger herbivores that feed on its pods, an abundance of life visits the tree. Pygmy Falcons sweep between the tree’s branches in pursuit of lizards, while cocktail ants utilize its thorns as a place to raise their young. In spring, the Camelthorn’s branches are draped with goldenyellow flowers that lure pollinators. The Camelthorn’s relationship with the landscape and all its inhabitants is as old as the Kalahari itself.

The world’s freshwater monsters are vanishing - and for biologist Jeremy Wade, that’s a wake-up call: a sign that our rivers are in trouble. Polluted, controlled, and over-exploited, even the mightiest are said to be dying. But are things really that simple? In Mighty Rivers, Jeremy takes the pulse of six of the planet’s biggest waterways. With the immersive style that’s made him a global TV star, Jeremy investigates the Amazon, the Ganges, the Yangtze, the Mississippi, the Danube, and the Zambezi. Are these huge rivers sick beyond the point of hope? Or have reports of their death been greatly exaggerated?

Narrated by Academy Award-winning and Kenyan-raised actress Lupita Nyong’o, “My Africa,” transports viewers to the untamed rangelands of Northern Kenya, where a community is reknitting the bonds that have long enabled people and wildlife to coexist. The story follows the journey of a young Samburu woman named Naltwasha Leripe as she takes viewers through her community’s daily life, tending livestock, digging “singing” wells deep into dry riverbanks and rescuing a baby elephant orphaned by a poacher’s gun.

Same-sex behaviour has been reported in more than 1,500 species - seemingly without evolutionary purpose. Could it be for non-sexual social reasons, such as dominance? From a male dog which prefers other males over a female in season, to Japanese macaques which form exclusively same-sex relationships, and even male lions, caught in the act by award-winning wildlife photographer Paul Goldstein, this frank documentary explores what’s really going on. Pioneering scientists reveal the latest research and explain that there are likely to be combinations of genes which underly homosexual behaviour and explain the possible evolutionary advantages to being gay.

Look into a herd of zebras and try counting the animals. You can’t! The mesmerizing effect was long thought to serve as a sort of camouflage against predators. We travel to Africa to scrutinize this and other theories regarding the zebra’s fascinating striped pattern. A way to beat the heat on the savanna? Perhaps to ward off the dangerous Tsetse fly whose unending appetite for blood can result in death? Let’s keep cool while avoiding some nasty bites and learn how the zebra earned its stripes!

Two-meter-long dinosaurs terrorizing Bangkok?? Not exactly! Yes, water monitors are indeed big but pose no real threat if left alone. Actually, they’re quite comfortable around people! Our team traveled to the Thai capital and found great numbers of these astonishing creatures in a major downtown park. Join us as we discover how they have adapted to their ‘urban kingdom’, with surprising hunting skills and a knack for finding safe and comfy evening accommodations!

What do you see when you picture a nautilus? On the surface, it’s a beautifully strange shelled cephalopod. But look closer... Our story starts with Act 1, an ode to the nautilus’ 500 million year old brain, nose, and its tentacle like cirri--how it experiences the world by smelling and feeling it. Act 2 looks inside the nautilus’ shell and finds the cephalopod has something in common with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and disease research. Finally, in Act 3, Captain Nemo’s Nautilus ship leads to the discovery of the lost first underwater film (see the footage for the first time in decades). It’s a story too strange and horrifying to be fiction.

An investigative story about Great Blue Herons, Bald Eagles, and their mysterious nesting relationship on the coast of British Columbia.

Serra da Mocidade is an isolated mountain range in the centre of the Amazon rainforest with the greatest chances of containing many species of plants and animals that are new to science. A group of renowned scientists took 10 years planning the most ambitious scientific expedition conducted into the Amazon forest in the 21st century with the goal to discover new species. This unprecedented scientific adventure led to the description of more than 80 new species of animals, plants and insects.

The rangers in Niassa National Reserve who are on the frontline of a war to protect the elephants have a message to share. They say that recent ivory bans in China and the U.S. have not translated into decreased poaching on the ground and poachers continue hunting and killing the remaining elephants in Niassa indiscriminately. Their message to the world: Stop purchasing ivory. Your purchase fuels illegal crime syndicates, funds poachers, and kills elephants; decrease corruption, and work together to preserve our resources. The rangers hope that one day those benefiting from poaching will become conscious, aware and choose peace. Until then, Niassa’s rangers are determined to save the elephants from extinction despite risking their lives every time they are out on patrol.

Breath-taking cinematography takes viewers to one of the greatest river ecosystems on the planet, and reveals the extraordinary animals and remarkable people who rely on the life giving waters of the River Nile. The Nile stretches all the way from mighty mountains ranges in the equator, through Africa’s wildest savannah lands, all the way to the barren deserts of the North. Its extraordinary record breaking journey takes it through more astonishing worlds than any other. From elephants and leopards, to extreme kayakers and ancient wonders, its great length provides a lifeline for Africa’s wildest creatures, and most incredible cultures.

Plankton is an important part in the eternal cycle of nature - eat and be eaten. In order to survive in this struggle for existence fantastic shapes have developed. But now human-made dangers threaten all life on earth and this biodiversity. Microplastics as a deadly food and destructive noise harm the ocean ecosystems. Without changing this condition, all life on earth will be destroyed.

The Norwegian Fjords are one of the most dramatic landscapes in Europe. Billions of herring darken the waters, and orcas and humpback whales feast on the fish banquet. Migrating salmon leap up waterfalls, strange sea pens flash their lights, and colourful sea slugs glow in the deep. Slow-motion and timelapse photography reveal an extraordinary diversity of life and behaviours rarely seen. It’s an intimate portrait of a unique wilderness - in the dark, icy grip of winter and during the long polar nights of the midnight sun.

Hundreds of cheetah cubs are being stolen from the wild, decimating the wild population in Africa. For every 5 cubs that are taken, only 1 survives. They are being smuggled illegally into the Middle East to be sold as pets. Not A Pet looks at the illegal wildlife pet trade, and the role social media plays in the parading and trading of exotic animals online.

The Okavango, in southwest Africa, is a very special river. It is born in the highlands of Angola - but, instead of flowing towards the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, it runs inland. After more than 1,500 kilometres, the waters of the Okavango create a huge river delta before disappearing into the Kalahari Desert. Much of the water evaporates in the intense sun, and the rest of it seeps into the parched dry sands of the Kalahari. The Okavango Delta is a true natural wonder - an unlikely oasis, a lush paradise in the middle of a hostile desert, that supports and feeds an incredible abundance of wildlife.

The wildlife characters in this extensive three-part documentary range from the familiar big heroes to the small wonders of the animal kingdom. By carefully selecting the animal characters, we will tell their powerful stories and understand their fascinating personalities. All these animal characters depend on the river system and its natural course. The continual ebb and flow of the Okavango means that these animals must continually adapt to a changing environment.

Lions on the hunt chase the buffalo, and keep the herds on the move. This pressure from the lions forces the herds to migrate further, breed faster, and by feeding on different parts of the Okavango’s vast area, they avoid getting sedentary and too accustomed to one place. Termites are always busy. Their continual feeding, burying, fertilising and building changes the landscape itself, even creating the islands of the Okavango - which, in turn attract wildlife like Letchwe antelopes. And these large herds again attract wild dogs and cheetahs.

These examples are just a few among countless others, showing that the Okavango is one of Africa’s greatest rivers. It has its own moods and personality - sometimes it feeds, sometimes it starves, it is the character of its own story. Like other African rivers, the Okavango has its very own ghosts and demons, its moodiness lurking in its deep dark waters.

In Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique, a brave team of Rangers is on the front lines, protecting this beautiful wilderness from a range of threats like bushmeat hunting and illegal logging. But Gorongosa is a million acres - the Rangers urgently need reinforcements. 700 candidates attempt to pass the intense mental and physical tests required. And, for the first time ever, women are allowed to apply. They have to endure the grueling 60-day trial just like the men. In this beautiful, engaging 80-minute feature-documentary film, we tell the inspirational stories of the Rangers who are chosen to proudly wear the uniform...

Intact ecosystems provide the best defence against climate change! The ecosystem of a small creek is complex and divers - the shocking reality is that in Central Europe only “ONE IN A THOUSAND” is still intact, today.

While it is often believed that these modern big cats evolved from the mighty sabretooths, the truth is that they actually competed with them for survival. How did these giant carnivores survive the ice age extinctions that wiped out the sabretooths, and persist into the present day? Brand-new night vision systems, super slow-motion cameras, and cuttingedge computer-generated imagery take us on a tantalizing trail of evidence, revealing incredible and surprising stories of the world’s most charismatic predators: lions, tigers, leopards, cheetahs, snow leopards, jaguar, puma.

This film offers an intimate journey in the breath-taking environment of the Cantabrique Cordillere in Northern Spain. It features the unique experience of an encounter with the cliff bear. As we follow the trail of this emblematic animal the film reveals its natural, primitive habitat where the flora and fauna are the living results of the preservation of nature... The subject of the film is the interconnecting discourses of four French and Spanish characters, who nurture an intimate vision into the wildlife. They question our relationship with nature and the possibility of us living in harmony.

In remote regions of the Rocky Mountains of the U.S. the river otter still thrives. They live their rollicking life in the lakes and rivers where fish also thrive. For the otter, even though he is a land animal, water is his medium of survival. “Otters - Rivermasters of Yellowstone” will follow two families of otters... two mothers with young. At first they fish and frolic as independent families. Eventually however, the families join together to face small challenges, such as beaver in their habitat, then challenges in following migrating cutthroat trout to their spawning beds.

Is it possible to get one billion people talking about our oceans? Blue Planet II struck a chord with audiences and Our Blue Planet aimed to continue the conversation and legacy. Through original short-form content, the project adopted innovative approaches to natural-history storytelling, being the first project of its kind to run alongside a BBC landmark. Stories covered important conservation issues; educating audiences about subjects like plastics, coral bleaching and the importance of protected marine parks. By collaborating with ocean passionate people and influential platforms the project reached young diverse audiences who wouldn’t necessarily watch a documentary series on television.

Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique has become one of the most celebrated wildlife restoration stories in Africa. A decade of careful conservation has brought the park back from the brink. In OUR GORONGOSA, Dominique Gonçalves, a vibrant Mozambican who runs the Gorongosa elephant ecology project, shares how Gorongosa is also redefining what a national park can be. From her own work mitigating human/elephant conflict; to clubs and schools that empower girls to avoid teen marriage and pregnancy; to health clinics and nutrition training for expectant mothers and families; Gorongosa is becoming an important model for conservation in the 21st Century.

A team of scientists, divers and photographers set out on a journey of discovery along one of the longest, and richest, coastlines in the world. Along the way they unveil three incredible natural events to the world, whilst highlighting the impending threats, and all the while promoting the protection of our oceans.

This eight-part series will explore the unique and precious wonders of our natural world from the creators of the award-winning series Planet Earth. In partnership with World Wildlife Fund, Our Planet combines stunning photography and technology with an unprecedented, never-before-filmed look at the planet’s remaining wilderness areas and their animal inhabitants. The ambitious four-year project has been filmed in 50 countries across all the continents of the world, with over 600 members of crew capturing more than three and a half thousand filming days, and will focus on the breadth of the diversity of habitats around the world, from the remote Arctic wilderness and mysterious deep oceans to the vast landscapes of Africa and diverse jungles of South America.

Located only 130 miles from Boston, the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts are known for their dizzying abundance of marine life (they are even nicknamed “the Serengeti of the Atlantic”) and yet very little of them have been explored. Because it’s not just life at the surface that thrives: deep below, within chasms deeper and vaster than the Grand Canyon, are corals that are hundreds, even thousands, of years old. On the second anniversary of the Canyons’ designation as a Marine National Monument, OceanX’s research vessel the Alucia took a voyage to observe them up-close and in person.

Explore the extraordinary several million-years journey of human evolution; from the earliest hominid born in Africa to our species, who ultimately spread across the globe. The story of humanity’s birth is a layered adventure full of setbacks, comebacks, and incredible dramas that unfold as our ancestors survive crisis after crisis. Witness the pivotal moments on the evolutionary path to modern humans and experience the great odyssey of our species.

In the last 30 years the world’s urban areas have almost tripled in size, changing faster than wildlife has ever experienced before. As cities are built, animals are pushed out of their natural homes. Their stories are the most surprising and captivating of all. Today, these “wild outcasts” find themselves fighting for their place in a land that once belonged to them. Where we learn to live with wildlife as neighbours, it can thrive, as is shown with the return of humpback whales to the waters of New York and manatees to the rivers of suburban Florida.

Painting the Falls of Yellowstone provides a beautiful depiction of many of the stunning, varied, and unique waterfalls in the Park. It tells the history, and Native American story as well as the story of the paintings - the vision of artist M.C. Poulsen, his creative process, the importance of travelling into the backcountry of Yellowstone to “see for oneself,” and the final creation of the paintings. In addition to the artist, the documentary features interviews with historians, travel journalist, and archeologists who describe the geology, flora, and fauna of the area.

Produced by Smithsonian Channel, the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, and Run Riot Films, Pandamonium: A Virtual Experience is an exclusive, up-close and behind-the-scenes look at the world of Bei Bei, Bao Bao and their parents.

The pangolin is a scaly mammal found in Africa and Asia. These shy creatures have an unfortunate tagline - “the most illegally trafficked wild mammals in the world”. Poached for their scales and shipped across the world in astonishing numbers, they face a silent extinction. Conservationist Maria Diekmann puts her own safety at risk to rescue pangolins from the black market. Her intimate bond with one very special rescued animal is helping to reveal the secrets of these little-studied creatures. To better understand the global issues threatening pangolins, Maria travels to Asia; into the very heart of the conservation crisis.

Narrated by Rachel Brosnahan, Paris to Pittsburgh brings to life the impassioned efforts of individuals who are battling the most severe threats of climate change in their own backyards. Set against the national debate over the United States’ energy future and the Trump Administration’s explosive decision to exit the Paris Climate Agreement, the film captures what’s at state for the communities around the country and the inspiring ways Americans are responding. Paris to Pittsburgh is co-directed by Sidney Beaumont and Michael Bonfiglio and produced by Bloomberg Philanthropies and RadicalMedia.

Parrot lover and conservationist Daria Feinstein is on a mission to protect one of Miami’s most spectacular wild residents: the Blue-and-yellow Macaw (Ara ararauna). Indigenous to Central and South America, these colorful parrots were introduced into Miami in the mid-20th century, and have since established a small but well-beloved breeding population in the city. Today, however, their numbers are crashing as poachers capture the macaws and their chicks to sell them into the lucrative pet trade. Florida state law provides no legal protection for these non-native birds. But the state’s wildlife agency considers the macaws “non-invasive” because they don’t seem to compete with or harm native species. Therefore, some municipalities have adopted “bird sanctuary laws” to protect them. How far should we go to protect non-native species, and can Miami’s wild macaws be saved before it’s too late?

Surrounded by mighty glaciers and fortress-like granite peaks, battered by Antarctic winds and icy rain, a female puma tries to raise its family and tracks its prey across the rugged landscape of Patagonia. Whereas in the Valdivian rainforest Darwin beetles fight for a mate. Constant upheaval and explosive change tests life in the Southern Andes at any moment. It is even more astonishing then, that there exist trees here, that outlasted the dinosaurs and are even older than the mountains themselves.

Peat forests throughout tropical Southeast Asia have been converted to farmland since the early 20th century. Burning was a common way to clear the land, but this burning of the peatlands created haze. This peat haze pollution reached critical levels between 2010-2015, and it posed significant challenges to human health and to regional economies.

The ancestral forests of the nomadic Orang Rimba have vanished. In the short span of three decades oil palm plantations have replaced much of the tropical peatland rain forests in Jambi, Indonesia. The People of the Forest, Orang Rimba in their dialect, dream of a happy future but have nowhere to go.

PLANET POWER explores the history of electricity - from the first spark created by man’s hand to today’s industrial power plants. We meet scientists who changed the world, like Faraday, Franklin, and Tesla and we glimpse the future, as Solar Impulse becomes the first plane to complete a round-the-world flight powered only by the sun. With a mix of chalk animation, CGI, archival footage and spectacular aerials, the film also explores the challenges ahead: how to meet the growing energy needs of our industrialized world, while also protecting the health of our planet.

In 2013 a non-governmental organisation launched a funny boat race named as the PLASTIC Cup. Their volunteers called themselves Plastic Pirates and their idea was quite simple. Why not to build plastic bottle boats from the garbage itself then get onboard and collect as many plastic from the river as possible?

NOVA investigates what happened in Flint, Michigan, when local officials changed the city’s water source to save money, but overlooked a critical treatment process. As the water pipes corroded, lead leached into the system, exposing the community to dangerous levels of poison. NOVA uncovers the science behind this manmade disaster-- from the intricacies of water chemistry to the biology of lead poisoning to the misuse of science itself. NOVA follows ordinary citizens and independent scientists who exposed the danger lurking in Flint’s water and confronted those who turned a blind eye.

Join legendary Polar explorer and National Geographic photographer PAUL NICKLEN on an epic adventure to Antarctica, across raging seas and into a dreamlike land...to come face to face with one of Antarctica’s most iconic creatures: a giant leopard seal.

Documentary feature film POWER OF PEARL is an adventurous portrait of sustainable pearl farming in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Australia, where building interdependent communities, fighting climate change, and halting encroaching industries, is crucial for survival. Pearls act as a barometer of ocean health and offer a window into the environment for people who might not otherwise be inclined to explore it. Filmed in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Australia over six years, and narrated by Ashlan Cousteau, POWER OF PEARL is a story about finding the balance between man and nature, which is our only hope for a sustainable future for us all.

The Niobrara River is a home to an wondrous diversity of wildlife; it is a crossroads where four ecosystems meet and mix; it is a revered ancestral homeland to the Ponca Tribe; and it is a place where ranchers have barns full of inner-tubes for visitors. Our crew spent four seasons capturing scenes along the river valley, including Valentine’s yearly Valentine’s Day Bull Bash, and came face to face with enormous bison and tiny prairie dogs. At a dig site, we were fortunate enough to watch as a paleontologist uncovered a 13-million-year-old camel skeleton

Dylan River is an award winning Aboriginal filmmaker and photographer from Alice Springs, Australia. He has been largely self-taught but comes from a family of storytellers and filmmakers, his grandmother, Freda Glynn, was one of the founders of the Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association (CAAMA), an organization founded in 1982 to maintain and sustain the culture and languages of Central Australia. Inspired by his grandmother’s archival film work to preserve Aboriginal culture of the past, Dylan’s mission is to seek out largely unknown, yet still vibrant examples, of living Aboriginal culture that exists today. His journey takes him across central and northern Australia, documenting ancient art and ceremonies in the salt water country of Bawaka, Arnhem Land.

In a pristine landscape, next to one of the most spectacular National Parks of Patagonia, a commercial project that is thought from the conservation point of view emerges for the first time in the region. The AWASI hotel took the challenge of renting almost 5.000ha. that surround it and turn it into a reserve. The idea is that instead of producing tons of sheep meat and wool as usual, tons of native wildlife can be produced. An innovative way of thinking and changing the way of producing: PRODUCING NATURE.

A harmless research project on superfoods surprisingly turned out to be a scandal in the science world in which top universities, leading scientists and even the ministry of science have been involved. More and more scientists publish their work in open access magazines who print all kinds of “nonsense studies” without any examination of their quality. Experts are warning that the entire system might be in danger if bad research continuously gets published in the name of proper science. How does this system work in practice? The author Peter Onneken has put it to the test. Claiming that the consumption of chia seeds will increase intelligence, his work has been published in scientific journals and his research has been praised on conferences. It does not end there: Bad research can have an immensely negative impact on the consumer, especially in matters of life and death.

Project White Shark is a 15-minute documentary introducing guests to the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s White Shark research program. A live presenter invites visitors on a journey to the remote Farallon Islands off the coast of San Francisco, where shark researchers have been studying sharks for decades. At the Farallones, we launch guests on an investigation into the incredible annual migrations of these mysterious top predators. Guests learn of remarkable advances occurring in white shark research technology, recent scientific findings that at are unraveling some of the white shark’s greatest mysteries, and the aquarium’s efforts to conserve sharks for future generations.

Showcasing how ancient people, who once inhabited present-day Alberta, hunted pronghorns, this stylized animation incorporates original illustrations from a native artist. It is projected onto a large circular screen low to the ground allowing for different story perspectives. An aerial perspective emphasizes the vastness of the landscape, shows communal hunting strategy, and reveals the shape of the stone drivelines at the Barnett Site. Closer views at ground level reveal key details of the scene. These perspectives are carefully choreographed allowing visitors to approach from either half of the circle to observe the cunning ingenuity of these ancient hunters and their communal pronghorn hunt.

Three competing lion prides prowl the western bank of the Luangwa River, a rampaging group of four young males, the Nomads, have already fought with the Hollywood Pride lionesses and now head south into the territory of the MK Pride. The action heats up when the Nomads launch a pride takeover, driving the MKs south along the river and almost out of their territory. If the Nomads are successful, the MKs’ cubs will almost certainly be killed. Experts in the heart of it all provide new insight as the story unfolds. The future of the whole MK pride hangs in the balance.

For the last decade, a team of frontline medics has been fighting to save Borneo’s critically endangered orangutans. Armed with cameras, International Animal Rescue has documented their struggle: pulling apes from devastated jungle, giving emergency medical care, rehabilitating, and releasing the healthiest orangutans back into the wild. This is both the story of their lifesaving work and of how one of our closest wild relatives has been pushed to the brink of extinction. Combining genuine rescue footage with contributions from experts throughout, this Natural World documentary looks toward the future and asks what hope remains to save the orangutan.

The giant panda is world famous. Very few people, however, have heard of the lesser or red panda, which is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful animals on earth. Hidden in the dense bamboo jungles of the Himalayas, the red panda leads an extremely covert life which has rarely been captured on camera. We follow a female as she raises her daughter, and join her in experiencing the vibrant flora and fauna between Nepal, Bhutan and Sikkim. This is the first ever intimate portrait of the red panda.

Ben set out to explore the island and record the sounds of the country’s unique lemurs, birds, and other animals. Utilizing these recordings, Mirin transforms the voices of nature, along with those of the people he meets during the journey, into original music that celebrates the biodiversity and conservation of one of the most unique places on the planet.

After all native desert bighorn sheep were eliminated from Texas by the 1960s, conservationists began the long fight for their return. Now, after many years of hard work and trial and error, healthy populations roam parts of the state.

The common wood frog has an unusual strategy for coping with the cold. While most terrestrial frogs and toads burrow deep underground to escape freezing temperatures when they hibernate, the wood frog spends its winters at the surface. The frog tucks itself into shallow depressions, covered only by a blanket of leaf litter. There it undergoes a transformation that would kill most other vertebrates: It freezes solid. This animated feature explores how the frog does this.

For mainly opportunistic reasons, and thanks to recent successful protection policies, many wildlife species have thrived in urban areas. This three part series will present the consequences, as well as the new challenges and new behavior patterns, required to both humans and animals, on the West Coast, in Middle America and on the Eastern Coast. This episode highlist the west coast American wildlife.

What if we brought back big carnivores throughout Europe, gave them vast areas to reproduce, and rediscovered the past landscapes? This fascinating vision raises many questions though. Should we not focus on the existing natural heritage? How could we implement it in modern and densely populated countries? What would the risk to human activity be? This film is a unique opportunity to look at both sides of the coin.

Rhinos are in a retreat. From Europe they vanished thousands of years ago, nothing but faint cave paintings remaining in their wake. In Asia a handful are roaming the last fragments of rainforest. In Africa their survivors are forced behind electric fences, guarded by heavily armed rangers. On the black market the price of rhino horn is skyrocketing. Europol issued a warning that organized crime gangs started to steal rhino horns from museums and private collections. Rhinos are wanted everywhere. Still, there is a place where they can find a safe shelter. And that place is in the fridge...

A poetic expedition between two indigenous islanders, one from the Marshall Islands and one from Greenland, connecting their realities of melting glaciers and rising sea levels. Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner and Aka Niviana use their poetry to showcase the linkages between their homelands in the face of climate change.

Part of the Wild & Scenic River System, the Missouri National Recreational River preserves and protects a 100 mile stretch of the “Big Muddy”.

The Sea of Okhotsk lies between the Kamchatka Peninsula and the Japanese island of Hokkaido: the last and greatest unspoiled ocean on Earth. It can be harsh and unforgiving; temperatures drop to -40 degrees, typhoons and tsunamis lash the shores. But it’s also a wildlife paradise where animals grow bigger, stronger and more numerous than anywhere else. Its iconic animals are giant brown bears, the world’s biggest sea eagles and the acrobatic spotted seals. Grizzlies here dip into the thermal baths and geysers left by the world’s most active volcanoes. The few human inhabitants are held by the glory of the natural spectacles, including the world’s largest seabird colonies, orca pods and humpback whales.

Every winter, hardy volunteers flock to beaches in the Salish Sea late at night. The all-ages group leans into the bitter cold low-tide with their headlamps and waterproof layers. Their work is shining light on how intertidal communities are changing in the face of climate change and other human impacts. “Salish Sea After Dark” chronicles one winter of community scientists’ night time work and the unique lessons that can be learned from the south Puget Sound’s intertidal zone. Produced and directed by Carly Vester with Harbor WildWatch.

Everybody’s time is running, like sand in a hourglass. Most of us will fight against time when sand is running out. During this film we will follow the last struggles of an ant whose time seems coming to an end. Will he survive against the mighty jaws of the antlion?

In an ancient land a battle for survival plays out like a `Game of Thrones’ episode, but the warring clans here are lions, leopards, hyenas and wild dogs. Set in the remote wilderness of Savute, Africa, `Savage Kingdom’ is a rare look at rival animal factions fighting for decreasing resources in a parched region. Complete with brutal violence, unexpected deaths, surprising characters, and even romantic interludes, each episode is told from one predator’s point of view. The result is a dramatic, character-driven story shot by award-winning Botswanan filmmaker Brad Bestelink. Emmy-nominated actor Charles Dance narrates the miniseries.

The Bucardo, the Pyrenean mountain goat, was a unique animal. For centuries, intensive hunting forced it to hide in an inaccessible habitat, the National Park of Ordesa and Monte Perdido. During many years, scientists and institutions fought to avoid its extinction but, in the year 2000, the last bucardo died. However, in 2003, Spanish and French scientists managed to clone the last bucardo. It was the first time in history that an extinct animal came back to life. It was the first real “Jurasic Park”.

A baby rhino named Arthur has been left orphaned after poachers brutally killed his mother before his very eyes. Save This Rhino follows Arthur’s story on a journey to meet the people fighting for rhinos and searching for antipoaching solutions. Kevin Pietersen (former English cricket captain) and Matt Wright (Monster Croc Wrangler) are at the centre of this conservation war and investigate the impact on rhinos, African wildlife and the local human population around Kruger National Park. They explore current tactics, and discover innovative new solutions through technology. What can be done to prevent the rhinos from extinction by 2025?

There is an illegal trade taking place in our country that is third in size only to drugs and weapons - and most of it happens without us even realising. This is the illegal reptile trade. Worldwide, the illegal wildlife trade is estimated to be worth as much as $300 billion per year, of which reptiles make up the largest group of animals being traded. Although reptiles make up such a substantial portion of illegal wildlife trade, they are not seen as significant tourist attractions as charismatic mammal species such as elephants, rhinos and lions, and therefore do not receive the same level of conservation attention from researchers and the public alike. As such, there are several species of South African reptiles that are imperilled by this illegal trade. One of which is the Sungazer lizard - a large dragon-like lizard that is only found in the Highveld grasslands of South Africa, a species that director Shivan Parusnath has been studying for the past 8 years.

The Dead Sea is dying: Since 1976, its level has dropped more than 100 feet, leaving its coastline pockmarked with thousands of sinkholes. But after more than a decade of research and debate, scientists, engineers, and political leaders have come up with a daring plan: connect the Red Sea to the Dead Sea by way of a massive desalination plant. NOVA follows this unprecedented endeavor-perhaps the world’s largest water chemistry experiment--as scientists race to save the Dead Sea and bring water to one of the driest regions on Earth.

In Mexico’s Sea of Cortez, a group of brilliant scientists, high-tech activists, investigative journalists and courageous undercover agents attempt to rescue the most endangered and elusive whale on Earth while battling the vicious Mexican drug cartels and Chinese traffickers whose destructive poaching methods are threatening the region’s marine life.

Are sea turtles destined to turn all female? This video documents cutting edge research that discovers alarming trends as global temperatures rise, and fewer male turtles are hatching from the nesting beaches.

The Nanwakolas Council, composed of six First Nations in British Columbia with traditional territories on northern Vancouver Island and adjacent areas, has been helping Indigenous youth and coastal communities in general strengthen their connection with cedar. The project, the Large Cultural Cedar Project, trains and sends out surveyors to locate monumental cedars--the big trees that provide communities with house posts, totem poles, and canoes. There are few giant cedars left on Vancouver Island and the first step in saving them--and revitalizing an ancient relationship--is finding them.

In recent years, new findings have turned the fanciful pursuit of extraterrestrial life into a bona fide scientific endeavor. Are we alone? Second Genesis follows planetary scientist Carolyn Porco as she tackles that question, examining what it takes to search for life beyond Earth, and making the case for Saturn’s icy moon Enceladus as the most promising place to look. Are we on the brink of a discovery that will rewrite the story of life as we know it? Will proof of a second genesis change our view of our place in the universe?

We love squirrels, yet we only know them from their brief visits to ground level. This film portrays European red squirrels in their own environment, high in the treetops. It traces their life-cycle from their winter preparations, nest-building and nut-storing, through mating and rearing their young, and surviving the attacks of predators. The film also focuses on the grey squirrel, the bigger, stronger transatlantic invader that carries a virus the reds can’t combat. Greys now dominate most of Britain and much of Italy, but there’s a lively campaign to win back for the red some of its lost territory.

The search for the origins of life on Earth has taken scientists to some of the most extreme environments on the planet, and an expedition by a team from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in the summer of 2017 was no exception. Led by marine geologist Frieder Klein, researchers dove submarines to depths of 1,000 meters (3,280 feet) off the coast of a tiny cluster of islets on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Their quest? To locate signs of life in the blackness of the deep sea--organisms fueled not by sunlight but by the chemical energy from hydrothermal vents on the seafloor. Klein explains how organisms found in ecosystems like this provides clues about the origin of life--on Earth and possibly elsewhere in the Universe.

My newly discovered fascination takes me to an expedition of exploring the migration of the Humpback whales along Durban’s coastline. It is said that they migrate periodically from mid-year and cruise the KwaZulu Natal coastline until Mid-December. My fascination and intrigue with the giants is how I seek to unveil the constant immigrants who are somewhat seeking for a place of restitute along those coastlines. They are an awesome wonder to watch and the film takes an appreciative, informative, and investigative approach to their existence which many still are yet to discover and marvel.

Since 1885 the Shoshone people have been without buffalo on their land. After decades of effort beginning in the 1990’s a coalition of individuals and organizations led by Jason Baldes have taken the first step in returning the North American Bison to their native lands. No where is this action more culturally and ecologically significant than on the Wind River Indian Reservation in central Wyoming.

From Executive Producer Sir Richard Branson, Sides of a Horn is the first film to tell the story of Africa’s poaching war from both sides of the fence. Based on actual events, and filmed in one of the communities most directly impacted by wildlife crime, we follow the journey of two brothers-in-law fighting on opposite sides of Africa’s poaching war. This dramatic short film paints an unbiased portrait of a modern war that is tearing communities apart and driving a prehistoric species to the verge of extinction.

After a study revealed that more than half the central African forest elephant population has been lost to poaching in the last decade, there has been a concerted effort to save those that remain. SILENT FORESTS will explore this story through a range of dynamic subjects; including one of Cameroon’s first female eco-guards, a grassroots wildlife law enforcement group, a Congolese biologist studying elephant behavior, a reformed elephant poacher, and a team of anti-poaching sniffer dogs led by a Czech conservationist. As passionate and tenacious as these conservationists are, they are up against huge institutional challenges like corruption and lack of funding that threaten to derail all their attempts to fight for the future of the forest elephant.

Set in the iMfolozi wilderness, South Africa, in the oldest game park in Africa, Sisters of the Wilderness tells the story of five young Zulu women going into the wilderness for the first time in their lives on a journey of healing and selfdiscovery, which serves as a reminder that we are intimately linked to nature. On their journey they learn about the plight of this primordial wilderness which is severely threatened by an open-cast coal mine on its border, and the dire rhino poaching, in this park, which is now the epicentre of South Africa’s rhino poaching activity.

Slime mould is strange in many ways: it’s neither a plant, an animal nor a fungus, but a giant single cell that crawls around eating dead matter. With beautiful and mesmerising time lapse videography, Smart Slime? takes us on a journey though its lifecycle, and introduces us to the quirky work of two high profile slime mould researchers. Building intricate and efficient networks that rival man-made ones and learning by habituation are only some of this creature’s many talents. So can it be considered intelligent?

A story as exciting as a crime novel: This investigative documentary shows how the oil industry secretly has been financing scientific studies, launching false media reports and has systematically been deceiving the public about the consequences of climate change - since 1946.

In India, the lives of people and snakes are closely connected together. The World Health Organization classified snakebite as a neglected tropical disease as few efforts exist to reduce snakebite deaths around the world. Thanks to people like Murthy Kantimahanti and Ajay Giri, there is a chance that people can live in harmony with snakes. They are risking their own lives to protect some of India’s most dangerous snake species. SNAKE RESCUE CALL is the incredible true story about the dedicated wildlife conservationists who work to solve human-snake conflict in their communities.

Is Sniper the weapon of last resort to save the world’s rarest penguins? In New Zealand’s South Island, Yellow-eyed Penguin numbers have dwindled over the years. Though the Wildlife Hospital in Dunedin provides medical care to the sick birds, finding an injured penguin in the bush is tricky. But former ranger Leith Thomson has a way. Sniper. She is one of the 80 certified Conservation Dogs in New Zealand. And the only dog trained to sniff out Yellow-eyed Penguins. Now every penguin counts... and Sniper is on an adventure to protect the critically endangered birds.

“Every one of us is a zoo in our own right,” according to award-winning science writer Ed Yong, whose book I Contain Multitudes is the basis for this whimsical and enlightening series of short films of the same name. With the aid of animated microbes and conversations with scientists, Ed takes viewers on a curious and entertaining journey through the tiny yet immense universe of microbes that live on and within larger creatures, including ourselves. The microbiome represents nothing short of a new way to think about life--one that emphasizes teamwork over competition.

Deep in the emerald cloud forests of Cusuco National Park of Honduras, scientists are on a quest to record the never-before-heard call of the endangered “exquisite spike-thumb frog” (Plectrohyla exquisita). What ensues is both a delightful portrait of the process of scientific discovery and an inspiring example of the power of sound as a tool for conservation.

From the dry Kalahari desert to the mist-shrouded Table Mountains of Cape Town and the wide savannahs - the destiny of South Africa’s creatures is determined by which currents are just dominant along its coasts at any moment in time. Meerkats, the “keeper of the deserts” are the “super stars” of the Kalahari. Dirk Steffens is fascinated by these congenial animals, whose strategy of survival has been researched by scientists for 25 years. And in the savannahs anti poaching units fight for the survival of the rhinos which might have disappeared in 20 years time due to poaching.

Here on Earth, volcanic eruptions are dramatic manifestations of our dynamic planet. Elsewhere in our solar system, awe-inspiring extraterrestrial volcanoes-both active and extinct--provide clues to planetary formation and hints of how life may have formed. Join us for a 360 virtual expedition to Mars’s massive shield volcano Olympus Mons, the violent surface of Jupiter’s moon Io, and the icy jets of Saturn’s moon Enceladus.

Science Channel followed the final moments of NASA’s Cassini spacecraft before it crashed into the atmosphere of Saturn. On Friday, September 15th, 2017, the Cassini mission ended its remarkable 13year tour of Saturn by plunging into the gas giant and burning up. Cassini spent months diving close to Saturn’s rings, offering the world remarkable never-before-seen images of the planet. Science Channel captured the months of lead-up to the mission’s ‘Grand Finale,’ as well images taken right before the crash, in SPACE’S DEEPEST SECRETS: CASSINI. The network also went live on September 15 at 7:50 a.m., broadcasting Cassini’s final moments. The images taken by Cassini have provided the closest ever look at Saturn’s swirling cloud tops, as well as the first accurate measurement of its magnetic field. It will be a fitting end to one of the most scientifically fascinating space missions ever undertaken. SPACE’S DEEPEST SECRETS: CASSINI recounts the 20-year history of the mission, its countless discoveries and awe-inspiring images, and how it has completely transformed our understanding of Saturn, its rings and moons.

For centuries we’ve looked up at the night sky and wondered, are we alone? We’ve sent probes to the farthest reaches of the Solar System and broadcast messages out into the depths of space, but in all that time we’ve heard nothing back, until now. In the last few years a mysterious signal from space has shaken astronomy to its core. A special episode of SPACE’S DEEPEST SECRETS, tells the story of a genuine scientific mystery, the recent discovery, confirmation, and on-going attempts to understand the origin of Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs), enigmatic pulses from deep space that have so-far defied explanation. Among the experts interviewed in the special is Tabetha Boyajian, an astronomer from Louisiana State University, who in 2015 detected a distant star using data collected from the Kepler Telescope. The star, which has become known as Tabby’s Star, was observed to undergo unusual changes in brightness. One of the theories associated with Tabby’s Star is that its light fluctuations are large megastructures created by aliens that are orbiting the star. STRANGE SIGNALS FROM ALIEN WORLDS also speaks with Dr. Frank Drake, one of the pioneers in the scientific search for extra-terrestrial intelligence, and the founder of the SETI Institute. Also heard from is West Virginia University astronomer Duncan Lorimer, who in 2007, accidentally found the first FRB that was recorded, now known as the Lorimer Burst, while analyzing data from the Parkes radio telescope in Australia.

Camera technology is revolutionizing the study of animals. With more eyes in the wild than ever, we can finally bear direct witness to many of nature’s longest kept secrets. For scientists, this is an incredible development. Like the invention of the microscope for microbiologists, suddenly, we have a new way to see the natural world, and a precious opportunity to bond with animals in an emotional way. Spying on Animals shows us how innovations in remote, unmanned cameras are a revolution for scientists, a wellspring for new and powerful connections between ourselves and wildlife, and an inspirational force for conservation.

Focusing on the “unsung heroes of the animal kingdom”, Stay At Home Animal Dads explores a world where little-known fathers take on the task of childrearing on their own. From pregnant male seahorses to “super dad” male emus, who incubate eggs for months on end, to the peculiar plainfin midshipman, a fish father that nests on the rocky shores of southern British Columbia, we follow the hardships, devotions, and quirky lifestyles exemplary of male-only care in the wild.

In this roller coaster ride between continents, two first time filmmakers embed themselves on the front-lines of the rhino genocide where they are witness to the war unfolding. Carving out six months to film, the women quickly find themselves immersed in a world far larger and more dangerous than they’d imagined, only emerging from their odyssey four years later. Gaining unprecedented access to the rangers, vets, prosecutors and orphan rehabbers in Africa and with extraordinary undercover footage showing how the horn is processed, packaged and sold in Asia, they capture the panorama of the global trade in rhino horn.

Ball’s Pyramid is the tallest sea stack in the world, a monolithic rock jutting from the Pacific Ocean 20km from Lord Howe Island and the sight of one of the most remarkable rediscoveries of the 21st century. Stuck on a Rock is a story of adventure and persistence in the face of adversity. It is also the slightly odd tale of an extinct stick insect and the people trying to bring it back from the dead.

This film explores the wildlife of Greece’s coast and islands: two colourchanging specialists, African chameleons on land, cuttlefish under water, reveal remarkable hunting, mating and reproduction strategies. Endemic Milos vipers spear migrating songbirds resting at rock pools on this harsh, volcanic island, while in a valley on Rhodes, Jersey Tiger butterflies coat the rocks and trees and Hardun lizards hoover them up. Composer Tristan Schulze sourced both archaic and modern Greek instruments to accompany and comment on these sequences with themes inspired by both familiar and more unusal Greek musical styles.

What does it take to survive in some of the extraordinary places on earth? A three-part PBS/BBC coproduction, EARTH’S NAUTRAL WONDERS: LIFE AT THE EXTREMES highlights parts of the natural world that nature has carved on such a grand scale, they beggar belief. Vast mountain ranges, impenetrable rainforests and dazzling tropical islands - places where nature is visible at its most primal, most powerful and most extraordinarily beautiful. For human beings, survival within these wonders can pose extraordinary challenges, and this series examines what it takes to survive in some of the most extreme places on the planet.

No nation on earth adores its native birds more than Indonesia. But there’s a sinister side to this love story: millions of wild birds are trapped every year to be kept as pets, pushing populations to the brink of extinction. Through candid interviews, the motivations of those involved in Indonesia’s thriving bird trade are revealed, along with its alarming consequences. ‘Chirping mania’ sees men competing songbirds head-to-head to win vast sums of money - with temptations like this, and longstanding traditions to uphold, even the most caring bird owner will risk destroying the very things they love the most.

On New York’s Governor’s Island, an unprecedented program has an ambitious goal: to restore once-bountiful oysters and the environmental benefits they bring to New York Harbor. Directed by award-winning filmmakers Kristi Jacobson and Roger Ross Williams, TAKE BACK THE HARBOR highlights the unlikely teenage foot soldiers and their inspiring teachers at The Harbor School, a remarkable public high school that teaches conservation and leadership of the waterways - including SCUBA diving, raising oyster larvae, operating and maintaining vessels, alongside math and English.

Tremendously tall - or ridiculously small: nature never ceases to surprise. In Africa, we meet the largest birds in the world, ostriches, so massive they can’t even fly; and our planet’s tallest mammals, giraffes. They can stretch their necks to reach leaves up to seven metres high in the treetops. In Africa’s Namaqualand, just one shower is enough to bring the desert to life: plants that look dead suddenly blossom, creating a sea of colour. A feast for all inhabitants, whatever their size!

Tasmania lies on the Australian continent, but is a world apart. It is home to an extraordinary cast of black devils and white wallabies. Trees here tower to one hundred metres and green lights dance in the southern sky. As the last landfall heading south before Antarctica, Tasmania’s isolation, cooler climate and distinct seasons influence everything.

The 500 is the story of one man dedicated to saving one of the world’s most endangered species. With fewer than 500 individuals, the Ethiopian wolf is on the brink of extinction. For Alo the wolves are family, needing protection for years to come. He knows the importance of inspiring the next generation, namely his daughter, to love wolves like he does. Integral to telling Alo’s story with his canine and human families, is the viewer’s experience of the wolves up close.The film ends with Alo’s challenge to Ethiopia’s next generation: to love and protect their most unique animal.

Mussels and barnacles seem to live sedentary lives stuck to a rock, but they weren’t always that stationary. As babies, they wander the oceans until they find the perfect time and place to settle down for adult life. From kitchen brushes to invertebrate condos, come learn how scientists at the Hakai Institute and beyond study larval journeys from plankton to recruit to adulthood.

Albatrosses and Rockhopper penguins share the same land during a short Summer. Yet, two different destinies await their offspring. Here is another touching story about Life. It is mating season on the Falkland Islands. On this small patch of land in the South Atlantic, different species are racing against time in order to give birth and breed their chicks or cubs. Although they are few centimeters apart and they are both birds, albatrosses and penguins do not share the same destiny: the former are the princes of the sky whereas the latter are great swimmers.

In science, new ideas come from observations that donêt fit the old ideas. Scientists can understand the functional by studying the broken, the healthy by studying the sick, and the normal by studying the bizarre. Enter the “anomalies”; species that break the rules and force us to come up with better, more inclusive, more powerful ideas to explain the world around us. The Anomalies is a series that tells the stories of these oddball organisms and the scientists who study them to understand the basic principles governing all of life on Earth.

Unlike virtually any other birds, acorn woodpeckers live in complex family groups numbering up to 15 adults, all of which work together to raise chicks in a single nest. This surprising discovery led scientists in the 1920s to declare that there was “communism” at play in the species. Biologist Walter Koenig has been studying acorn woodpeckers for more than 40 years to better understand this complex social structure. Every summer, he and his colleagues capture and band hundreds of new woodpecker chicks. The huge dataset they have amassed has yielded surprising answers to one of evolutionary biology’s biggest questions: Why cooperate?

Most scorpions are harmless to humans, but in the deserts of North America, one group of species, collectively called striped bark scorpions produce venom that is potentially lethal and extremely painful. Despite their potent venom, striped bark scorpions are still a favorite meal of a small rodent called the grasshopper mouse. After decades of work, biologists have discovered that this tiny mouse may be the key to explaining how and why striped bark scorpion venom is so toxic.

The Atomic Tree is a journey into the memories of one of the most revered trees in the world--a 400-year-old Japanese White Pine bonsai that witnessed--and survived--the atomic blast in Hiroshima. From Japan’s ancient cedar forests and Buddhist temples to the family home in Hiroshima where the pine was nurtured for five generations, this VR experience explores the unbroken chain of living stories held within the rings of this tree. The delicate shape of this bonsai contains sacred forests, human family, and deep time, inviting us to reflect on the living strands of kinship that are woven between human and non-human worlds.

THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature. Featuring breathtaking cinematography, captivating animals, and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature’s call, THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM provides us all a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet

With less than 30 birds living in the wild this timely documentary tells their story and the efforts to save this species from extinction. Aspects of their behaviour are shown on film for the first time and scientists working on the recovery efforts are interviewed. What is the future for this beautiful bird?

In September 2015, a U.S. fishery observer went missing 500 miles off the coast of Peru. His name was Keith Davis, a trained marine biologist hired to monitor fish catches as they were being transferred to freezer holds on a transshipment vessel. Environmental reporter Tom Knudson along with two former observers piece together Keith’s story, and in doing so, unravel a darker truth that lurks beneath the waves of the Pacific...

This film takes you on a mesmerizing journey with the first female forest guardian, through remote bamboo jungles, scaling the mighty Himalayan wilderness into the hidden world of Red Pandas.

On March 11, 2011, a huge tsunami generated by the Great East Japan Earthquake struck Japan’s northeastern coast, including Kesennuma in Miyagi Prefecture. All life vanished from the sea. In despair, an oyster farmer named Shigeatsu Hatakeyama decided to rebuild his life. Though a fisherman, he also spent decades reforesting the surrounding hills and was sure the sea would recover. This program starts following Hatakeyama just after the disaster, showing how the sea and the forest are cleansed through mutual interaction. Featuring his moving monologue, it celebrates the miracle of resurrected life in a seaside village.

Parts of the Romanian Carpatians are among the last primeval forests in Europe. But although the national park is officially protected, it is still being deforested. The WWF estimates that 30 percent of all logging takes place illegally. The wood goes into pellet production and into Romanian chipboard factories for cheap furniture. The hunger for wood also left marks on the densely wooded countries of Scandinavia. It seems that clear-cutting in Sweden is simply more economical than limited felling.

After the loss of an important display feather a famous Superb Lyrebird called ‘The Pretender’ struggles to win a mate during the most competitive song and dance competition in Australia. He is carefully watched over by his greatest fan, an enthusiastic lady called Jan.

In our pilot episode of an upcoming four part series, we join the herd in the southern plains as the rains slowly depart and they prepare to move north. Through this, we explore the cause and effect that a migration of this size has on all living things within the ecosystem, what what our impacts on it are as well.

A documentary about one of the sea behemoths: the ocean sunfish. This strange inhabitant of the great blue spaces surprises the scientists by his capacities beyond norms, and his records, unveiled in the wake of his voyage between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, from the tiny egg, to the monumental adult. Immerse yourself in the discovery of The Hidden Face of the Ocean sunfish!

We began the 20th century with over 100,000 wild tigers. We ended the same century with less than 4,000. Hunted and then poached, encroached upon and then slaughtered, the wild tigers of Asia are in trouble and face extinction. But there is a secret number, a terrifying number few know: the shocking number of the hidden tigers of America. An estimated 10,000 of these live in the backyards, roadside attractions, theme parks, zoos and sanctuaries of North America alone. The Hidden Tiger travels the world and exposes the deadly links between captive tigers and the wild tigers’ possible extinction.

In the Arariboia indigenous territory live an autonomous people. They choose no contact with the world beyond their forest, nor with the invaders that enter it. Everything that they need they take from the forest. They are the Awa-Guaja and they are in danger. When a hunting party of the neighboring Guajajara people happened upon a camp of the Awa-Guaja, indigenous filmmaker Flay Guajajara captured rare images of the people most vulnerable to the rampant deforestation threatening the Arariboia. Hunters, drug-traffickers, land grabbers, loggers and wildfires threaten the future of the great forest they call home.

This is the incredible story of a tree that has been around for eight hundred years... that can withstand the harshest conditions... and that is more loved by insects, birds and animals than any other tree in Africa... an enormous Baobab rooted on the savannah of Malilangwe Game Reserve in southern Zimbabwe. Buffalo weavers and the endangered white-backed vulture build their nests amongst the branches of the baobab, while elephants break off pieces of the tree for the water stored in its trunk.

In an arresting new documentary from the producers of RACING EXTINCTION, THE COVE and CHASING ICE, environmental photographer James Balog captures the lives of everyday Americans on the front lines of climate change. With rare compassion and heart, THE HUMAN ELEMENT inspires us to reevaluate our relationship with the natural world.

Today, a million species are threatened with extinction because of humans. Today, numerous species are threatened with extinction because of humans. In Kenya, a country the size of Texas with twice the number of people, the population explosion is putting humans and wildlife in constant competition for limited resources and space. It’s the perfect recipe for conflict. This film tells the story behind Kenya’s present-day struggles with human-wildlife conflict. Using rare video footage from 1937 of renowned Big Game hunter J.A. Hunter, we are guided through Kenya by his grandson, Alex, to learn about the efforts of four unique conservancies, each successfully mitigating the often-tragic encounters between humans and wildlife.

A journey of science, love & magic in the ocean.

Cheetahs are the high-speed hunters of the Savannah. Few attempt to take on larger prey than gazelles or smallish antelopes. But on occasion, the predatory cats reveal their surprisingly different side. In the Northern Serengeti, a group of male cheetahs emerges and turns all we know about them upside down. Males are usually loners or live in small groups, but here we have five tomcats hunting together as one. It is actually, the largest alliance of the animals ever seen! This film has many stories to tell about the sleek hunters.

75% of the Insects are lost in the last 30 years. Many species died out completely. Scientists are talking about the sixth big die out of species on our planet. They are extremely concerned because this mass mortality is an anthropogenic problem. The documentary gives answers to reason, dimension and the meaning for our society. If we are losing the Insects we will lose the identity of our planet.

Between the Black Forest and the Vosges flows the Rhine - and another river, underground: a river of groundwater that creates unique wetlands. Prizewinning underwater cameraman Serge Dumont reveals this secret world and documents its inhabitants’ amazing behaviour patterns.

Prahlad spent most of his life abusively training elephants in the circus in India. Being a Mahout, or elephant trainer, is all he’s ever known. Until now. In the King’s Keeper we meet two characters, Gajraj and Prahlad at what Prahlad calls a place where “we work for elephants.” Gajraj, a seventy year old tusker who’s name means “King of the elephants,” spent nearly fifty years of his life in chains. When Prahlad first saw him come out of the rescue vehicle and step into the Elephant Conservation and Care Center he says “I had my heart set on him.”

This is the incredible story of how fungi made life on land possible. Neither plants nor animals - fungi represent a third mode of life and belong to their own kingdom. By looking at fungi in the context of evolution and natural history, scientists are making discoveries that will change our lives. Some fungi will save us, others will threaten us and we are just beginning to understand which is which.

The Kodiak Queen is about the ground-breaking transformation of a decorated WWII warship that survived Pearl Harbour, into an artificial reef and dive site by Richard Branson in the British Virgin Islands. The essence of the project was to inspire a generation of ocean lovers. But it soon revealed itself to be about something much bigger. On the 6th of September 2017, Hurricane Irma released it ferocious power across the Caribbean and Florida Keys. Irma left behind a trail of unimaginable destruction, devastating the lives of thousands of people. In this haunting film, Academy Award winner Kate Winslet and award-winning filmmaker Rob Sorrenti remind us of the momentous task ahead restoring the British Virgin Islands.

On a narrow path through Florida’s Everglades Headwaters, three friends embark on a journey to survey a fragile wilderness corridor before it disappears forever. Amidst a backdrop of massive development and population growth, their expedition documents the vitality and connectedness of an ecosystem in a state of rapid transformation. Mother nature may be resilient - but when the last green thread is stretched to the breaking point, can we summon the courage and resourcefulness to change course?

Last of the Iron Lungs introduces us to one of the few remaining polio survivors in America who is kept alive by a half-century-old machine called an iron lung. Paul Alexander’s story is both an inspiration and a warning about public health. Despite being stuck in a metal tube that helps him breathe, he has managed to pursue a career as a lawyer, and he’s never given up on life. Still, his battle with polio as a child is a stark reminder why access to life-saving vaccinations is so vital for children globally. Through a mix of stunning visuals of Paul in his iron lung, archival images, and interviews with the people that Paul interacts with in his daily life, including a car mechanic who fixes his iron lung, we managed to capture Paul’s story compellingly and educationally.

Leopards are solitary animals; but not in northwest India. In a remote, littleknown region of Rajasthan these majestic big cats display astonishing behaviour. They live in close proximity to each other and frequently interact. The leopards live on rocky hills, riddled with caves. Here a mother leopard, called Neelam, protects her three cubs from roaming adult males that would kill the youngsters. The many tunnels and caves act as a sanctuary. Their habitat, a large plain sprinkled with ancient rock formations, is unique. The leopards share this starkly beautiful landscape with families of hyenas, monkeys, peacocks and parrots, as well as with the local villagers. They all depend on the fickle monsoon rains.

The Lizardês Tale is the story of a thirty-year quest to reveal the fundamental rules of nature. Is evolution predictable? How are species organized into ecosystems? And how fast can evolution happen? Scientists’ clearest view into nature’s rulebook comes from an unlikely creature: a tiny lizard called an anole. Dr. Jonathan Losos and his colleagues have studied anoles for decades. In the seven episodes of The Lizard’s Tale, you’ll learn why anoles have become a workhorse for biologists like Losos, and how these seemingly ordinary lizards have transformed our understanding of evolution, ecology, and animal behavior.

Crested anoles are adept at city living - whether in Puerto Rico or in the U.S. city of Miami. Understanding why is an important part of figuring out the impact of urbanization. In other words, what effects are humans having on the wildlife? Studies have revealed that some species adapt quickly to new conditions developing the physical changes they need to survive. It’s a fact that bodes well for the ability of a species to handle change, as we ourselves continue to be the agents of that change.

Cuba, Hispaniola, Jamaica and Puerto Rico: the four big islands of the Caribbean, are hotbeds of anole activity. But what’s striking is the physical parallels you see between the anoles living on different islands - a phenomenon known as ecomorphism. But did these ecomorphs evolve first and then spread out to the different islands - or did they evolve separately, and then move? A battery of physical and DNA tests help point us toward a conclusive answer - and bring scientists one step closer to understanding the great mysteries of evolution.

Entomologists Charlie and Lois O’Brien have amassed more than 1 million insects from nearly 70 countries --the largest private collection in the world with an estimated 5,000 undiscovered species -- during the course of their long and storied careers. Now Lois, 90, and Charlie, 85, decide to give away their drawers full of iridescent weevils and planthoppers to further science. The Love Bugs is a light-hearted portrait of two aging but dedicated scientists that captures the tender moments, inside jokes and good-natured bickering that can only come from sharing a marriage and career for 55 years.

An international scientific expedition got on board of an Amazonian motorized canoe. It took 4 days to reach the Candamo Basin, a place where wildlife exists without any human disturbance since the beginning of times. Researchers climbed giant trees, investigated nest hollows, and collected genetic samples from macaws. But doing serious scientific work in the Amazon is not easy. Jaguars visit the camp, wasps attack the climbers and parasites hunt for them. Despite all the challenges the team returns to the lab with the invaluable samples that can help us understand the status of an isolated parrot population in Candamo.

The Macroscope,” is a short form online video science anthology with a cinematic angle. Through the lenses of narrative and documentary film genres - the series brings you the stories of wide field of scientists and innovators shining a spotlight on their discoveries and investigations. Short in form yet rich in details, “The Macroscope” is real science in one reel.

The Malay Archipelago is an El Dorado for naturalists. Even before Charles Darwin published his theory on the origin of species, the islands’ riches once led a certain Alfred Russel Wallace to the answer to the question: Where does the abundance of species come from? Which developed eventually into the question of all questions: Where do we come from? The archipelago with its unusual inhabitants helped Alfred Russel Wallace to reach conclusions that would change the world. Until today this world emanates a special fascination. In Borneo and Sulawesi Dirk Steffens traces back the footsteps of Alfred Russel Wallace.

Our neighbour in space still holds many mysteries - this film presents many new and surprising facts and findings about the Moon. For example, images of space probes have revealed that there are lava caves underneath the Moon’s rocky surface that could harbour a permanent human lunar base. Several countries and space agencies, but also private companies have plans to return to the Moon again - 50 years after the historic first landing of humans with Apollo 11.

The Most Unknown is an epic documentary film that sends nine scientists to extraordinary parts of the world to uncover unexpected answers to some of humanity’s biggest questions. How did life begin? What is time? What is consciousness? How much do we really know? By introducing researchers from diverse backgrounds for the first time, then dropping them into new, immersive field work they previously hadn’t tackled, the film pushes the boundaries of how science storytelling is approached. What emerges is a deeply human trip to the foundations of discovery and a powerful reminder that the unanswered questions are the most crucial ones to pose.

On the outskirts of Yellowstone National Park is Paradise Valley, Montana, home to bears, wolves, elk, and an animal so secretive, few ever get to see it: the mountain lion. Wildlife filmmaker Casey Anderson became one of those lucky few after following the tracks of the elusive cat from his backyard into the world of a mother and her three cubs. It was the beginning of what would become a remarkable relationship that gave Casey a rare glimpse into the life of a mountain lion family and a new understanding of an animal we know so little about.

“The Mustangs: An American Story” takes audiences on a journey to places few have seen or know about. There are more than 80,000 wild horses on federal lands in the United States and more than 50,000 in captivity. The mustang has a rich history, but they are entangled in controversy and bureaucracy and are making their last stand. The decisions being made now will determine their survival in the wild. Whether you are a horse person or not, this film will make you fall in love with America all over again and understand why the protection of our wild horses are worth fighting for.

On a planet increasingly dominated by humans, three teams of determined conservationists go to extraordinary, often seemingly nature-disrupting lengths to save three threatened species in the American heartland. Though “The Nature Makers” challenges audiences to consider the extreme measures now required to preserve much of what’s left of the wild, the story is ultimately a hopeful one. As one scientist says: “The state of conservation is very dire. There’s a lot of failure and extinction, but this is a story that’s actually gone right.” Scott Saunders’ film is a portrait of passionate people and the extraordinary creatures they’re fighting for.

Technologies like CRISPR are making it possible to quickly and cheaply change the DNA of all living things, including humans. Genes can be edited almost as easily as words on a computer screen. Brilliant scientists from across the globe are using these powerful new gene-editing technologies in ways once thought unimaginable. This new ability to alter our DNA holds the promise of curing disease ... saving threatened species ... solving the problem of world hunger ... maybe even obtaining human perfection. But will the promise be fulfilled?

From volcanoes to earthquakes and dust migration to meteorites - scientists reveal how much the Earth changes in 24 hours.

The paramo ecosystem in Colombia’s Chingaza National Park makes life in Bogota possible. It is responsible for 80% of the water supply for the city’s eight million residents, and shows us that if we take care of nature it will take care of us. While the people working in and around Chingaza channel water to the city, many are also striving to protect and preserve the Park’s critical ecosystem services. Government and non-government organizations are coordinating efforts to test water sources, monitor plants and animals, manage ecotourism, and educate the public about the paramo and its vital connection to Bogota.

In 1974, my 20-year-old parents and uncle Andy built their own canoes, launched them into the Pacific, and became some the first people in modern history to canoe from Washington to Alaska up the Inside Passage. My brother and I grew up paddling those wooden canoes in the Virginia rives and the 1974 adventure became legend in our family - shaping who we’ve become, how we view our parents, and how our parents view themselves. In the summer of 2017, we renovated those canoes and with our aging parents completed their 1974 journey. The Passage is a story about the dreams of aging brothers, fathers and sons, and the wild places that define us.

For thousands of years, the buffalo or plains bison (Bison bison) sustained the many native tribes that inhabited the Great Plains region of North America. But when Europeans arrived in the area, they nearly exterminated the buffalo and an indigenous way of life. In recent years, however, the Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of Montana’s Fort Peck Reservation have joined with other tribal groups throughout the region to bring buffalo back to their ancestral lands and into their lives.

The Jetlagged accompany manta ray researcher Elitza Germanov (Marine Megafauna Foundation) on a field trip in Komodo in Indonesia. Manta ray numbers are declining because their gills have recently become a dubious trend in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Numerous conservation efforts are taking place to protect the gentle ocean giants, including “Citizen Science” projects to identify individuals by their unique spot patterns on their bellies. The filmmakers document the efforts of scientists and conservationists in Indonesia like Elitza Germanov and Sarah Lewis (Indonesian Manta Project/Manta Trust), who are working tirelessly to save these beautiful animals from extinction.

National Geographic’s online Resource Library is a collection of educational resources for use in the classroom aligned to middle school standards in science, social studies, and geography. Explore the incredible diversity of Patagonia with penguin researcher and conservationist Pablo Borboroglu of the Global Penguin Society. He explains the interdependence of the organisms in this ecosystem, external threats, and what biodiversity means to its inhabitants.

The Pollinators is a cinematic journey around the United States following migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honey bees as they pollinate the flowers that become the fruits, nuts and vegetables we all eat. The many challenges the beekeepers and their bees face en route reveal flaws to our simplified chemically dependent agriculture system. We talk to farmers, scientists, chefs and academics along the way to give a broad perspective about the threats to honey bees, what it means to our food security and how we can improve it.

Water pollution and runoff are contaminating Florida’s freshwater, but the mermaids at Weeki Wachee State Park are fighting to protect the state’s rivers and springs.

The River and the Wall follows five friends on an immersive adventure through the Texas borderlands as they travel 1200 miles from El Paso to the Gulf of Mexico on horses, mountain bikes, and canoes. They set out to document the borderlands and explore the potential impacts of a wall on the natural environment, but as the wilderness gives way to the more populated and heavily trafficked Lower Rio Grande Valley, they come face-to-face with the human side of the immigration debate and enter uncharted emotional waters.

They are the EnviroChamps, a group who have become the unlikely protectors of the wetlands and rivers in their community. Through their journey, they reveal what endangers these systems and explore practical conservation solutions, whilst considering the socioeconomic challenges they face as a community. This is their story...

The Alps! How does life adapt to the extreme conditions of the frozen heart of Europe? From the mighty bear who fears no one to the strange bearded vulture who only eats bones, from the lonely she-wolf cast out of her pack to the surprising brown frog who lives in the snow, the animals who live in the Alps must outsmart each day the natural hazards of this extreme environment. Here are the surprising destinies of those species facing the violence of the mountain.

In the deep waters off the Big Island of Hawai’i, ocean scientists are deciphering the intricate interplay of physics, fish biology, and micro-plastics that make surface slicks an essential and threatened ocean phenomenon.

Unique throughout Germany, nearly three hundred cattle live year-round on pastures in the Hohenzollernalb, the herd comprising bulls, cows and calves. More than 35 years ago their farmer decided to give them the chance to live an animal-friendly life and began the outdoor experiment. Now, these descendants of former stable cows defy heat, hail and snow, sharing their meadows with foxes, flies and flocks of birds. The character traits and behaviours of these cattle increasingly resemble those of their extinct ancestors. For a year, the camera closely follows this wild herd, documenting its joys and dramas.

The film is an ode to amphibians it is also a plea to save them. The filmmakers have contributed to the research community by writing a scientific paper that would be used by people studying these amphibians. The Bedi Brothers along with scientist have also submitted a proposal to the Kerela State of India, for making Purple Frog a state frog which would help boost its conservation. The purple frog is considered an important species globally and it is endemic to Kerala and we believe that the Purple frog can be an ideal ambassador for the ecosystem that makes up the Western Ghats.

As storms and droughts increase and sea levels rise with climate change, forested wetlands up and down the Atlantic coast are transforming from vibrant ecosystems fill with dead or dying trees. The accelerating spread of these “ghost forests” from New Jersey to Florida over past decade has ecologists alarmed and eager to understand how they are formed and what effect they will have regionally and globally.

Beginning in the 1960s, a small band of young scientists headed out into the wilderness, driven by an insatiable curiosity about how nature works. Immersed in some of the most remote and spectacular places on Earth--they discovered a single set of rules that govern all life. Now in the twilight of their eminent careers, these five unsung heroes of modern ecology share the stories of their adventures, reveal how their pioneering work flipped our view of nature on its head, and give us a chance to reimagine the world as it could and should be.

At first glance, our sun seems quiet - but it isn’t. It’s an incredibly dynamic place, a world of extremes. This film captures the fascinating story of modern solar research in spectacular images, to reveal what has been discovered about the sun so far, to present current and future scientific projects, and to show the important work of researchers who are creating a new and comprehensive understanding of our sun.

Between Poland and Slovakia lies a wilderness virtually unique in Europe: the Tatra Mountains. One of the oldest forests in Europe grows on their slopes. It’s home to some formidable predators, long extinct elsewhere: bears, wolves and lynx. Untouched primeval woods full of game and nutritious plants offer an ideal habitat, especially for brown bears. Nowhere else in central Europe do so many of them live so close together as here. But what is it that makes this environment so attractive to them?

Reese Thompson grows trees for a living, but it’s the wild parts of his plantation that are at the heart of his work. Follow Reese through the backwoods of Georgia to see the federally listed indigo snake and the gopher tortoise, and hear why he wants to set it all on fire.

A story told with no words but with the power of sound and visuals of unspoiled Patagonia. Pure joy and sensorial experience. This is a meditational film, soothing for the soul and mind. Taking its viewers on an introspective journey of serenity. A deep breath of fresh air in a noisy world. The illusive pumas feature prominently not in the traditional format predator vs prey but in their more common state of relaxation and contemplation, giving viewers the opportunity to connect with this untouched part of the planet through slow motion, time-lapse and aerials. Mountains, animals, pure water, dark skies, sunsets and sunrises are waiting to be enjoyed in this art piece where the protagonist is our loving mother nature.

Can an old man’s love keep traditions alive? Imagine one of the most remote wildernesses in the world and a little girl and her nomadic Grandpa in this endless forest. They are Masha and Vladimir who live in the heart of Siberia. They are from the Evenki nation who used to be nomadic people. Vladimir wants to make sure that their nomadic culture lives on. He gets help from Zoltan Torok wildlife filmmaker, who finds photos of him on Instagram after 11 years and decides to return to his family. Only to find out they need the help from the outside world. Will they succeed together...?

An urgent threat emerges to spur fisherman/filmmaker, Mark Titus back to the wilds of Alaska, where the people of Bristol Bay and its storied wild salmon runs face devastation if a massive copper mine is constructed. By suddenly dismantling safeguards the EPA had enacted to protect the salmon, water and people of Bristol Bay - the current political regime in the United States has unilaterally revived a mining corporation’s relentless pursuit to build North America’s largest open-pit copper mine - directly in the headwaters of the most prodigious wild sockeye salmon run in the world.

The Andes are not just the longest chain of mountains on the planet; they are also the most dynamic. In this feature documentary, we journey from the lofty grasslands of the tropical north to the high plateau of the centre, down to the prehistoric forests of the south, exploring the ever-changing natural history of this incredible mountain range. From woolly monkeys to marvelous spatuletail hummingbirds, spectacled bears, hunting pumas, giant frogs, and one of the rarest animals on the continent, this is the definitive film on the wildlife of South America’s definitive mountain range.

Born from volcanic fire 25 million years ago, the Andes are the longest mountain chain on the planet. Pushed upwards by huge tectonic forces, they continue to rise, creating new landscapes and new habitats for a diverse variety of creatures. Explore the mountains’ extremes and celebrate the animals that call it home on a 4,000-mile journey along the western edge of South America, from icy Southern Patagonia to the oxygen-deprived Altiplano plateau to the northern tropical Andes.

Dr. Anne Innis Dagg re-traces the steps of her ground-breaking 1956 journey to South Africa to study giraffes in the wild. Now, at 85 years old, Anne sees a startling contrast between the world of giraffes she once knew and the one it has become. Weaving through the past and present, her harrowing journey gives us an intimate look into the factors that destroyed her career and the forces that brought her back to become a hero for giraffe conservation.

Yep, you probably have Demodex mites living on your face. These tiny arachnids feast on sebum, the greasy oil in your pores. But should you be worried about your eight-legged guests?

Featuring an emerging young wildlife biologist from the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe, Renewal is a heart-warming story of transformation and restoration on Washington State’s Elwha River. Co-produced with HHMI Tangled Bank Studios, this profile of two women in science was made as part of HHMI’s “Think Like A Scientist” series, released by Nautilus Magazine. This short film also follows up on an award-winning feature film by the same Director, Return of the River, which chronicled the largest dam removal in history.

Naked mole rats look like walking steamed spring rolls (with tails). But, beneath their translucent skin, they have a 35 million year old superpower: they are super carbon dioxide breathers (trust us, they’re joining the Avengers). And it’s not like they simply tolerate CO2--the way you might suffer through the exhaust pouring from a tailpipe. They need it. And, they need a lot of it. Imagine an eight-byeight elevator packed with 1,100 people--that’s the level of CO2 a nest full of mole rats need in order to survive. The question is: HOW? Because naked mole rats are mammals just like us. It should be toxic to them, but... it isn’t. It’s actually had a ton of benefits for them: CO2 has shaped their eusocial, insect-like society and might explain their long lives and resistance to cancer. The answer to all of this lies in a genetic mutation. It’s a genetic mutation only two mammals have: mole rats and humans. And, unlocking that code in these little hairless wonders could one day solve certain forms of autism, epilepsy, and schizophrenia in us. Dr. Dan McCloskey and his colony of 300 naked mole rats at CUNY College of Staten Island are trying to figure out this naked mole rat sized mystery.

A short history of the last 80,000 years, with Johan Rockstrom - the key to understanding how humanity can overcome the biggest problem it’s ever faced.

Tigers are the stuff of myths and folktales, poetry and art. Half a century ago, in the jungles of India, a young forest officer rallied the world to save tigers from extinction. Today, the creed is carried on in Far East Russia by the guardians of the last Siberian tigers, who risk everything to save the species. TIGERLAND is the story about our relationship with one of the world’s most revered creatures.

In the face of all the adversities on this ultimate “quest to see”, will Natasha fulfil her dream and join the ranks of those lucky few people on Earth to see a harpy eagle in the wild?

In the eighties, La Herradura beach was destroyed. In the nineties, the wave of Cabo Blanco was in danger of disappearing. A group of surfers organized to protect the places that gave them happiness and managed to get the State to approve the Rompientes Law, the first federal law in the world for the protection of waves. This is the story of that call to collective action.

In Tokyo, there are unapproachable “lost islands” where unspoiled environs cradle rich wildlife. Sofugan is a 100-meter-high solitary rock pillar standing in the ocean 650km south of the capital city’s center. Remote and difficult to access, it had never been explored in detail. A group of scientists and engineers set out on a two-year survey. This program records their journey, along with the creatures they discover - from unusual species amongst the rugged rocks to mysterious marine life in the surrounding deep sea.

Tomorrow’s Fish presents an exciting new angle on conservation. If you think fly fishing is all about peaceful mountain streams and trout, think again. Embarking on a breathtaking adventure to “fly the salt” off the coast of New York City with two intrepid guides, we experience the frontier gutsiness that stokes their intense commitment to ensuring a sustainable future for ocean fisheries, wildlife, and the ecosystem as a whole. It’s a powerful pursuit in an unlikely wilderness, where we are sparked to celebrate - and fight for - the infinite value of connecting to something real, something deep, something quintessentially wild.

Dying from diseases like ALS and Alzheimer’s is a tormenting process. The illnesses are on the increase and scientists believe an environmental toxin is to blame. Toxic Puzzle is a medical and environmental detective story where documentary filmmaker Bo Landin follows Cox and his team around the world in a hunt for the hidden killer. The pieces come together in a toxic puzzle where cyanobacteria in our waters becomes the culprit. Are these organisms, fed by human pollution and climate change, staging nature’s revenge by claiming human lives?

A horse logger and his horse take us deep into a forest in the Ardennes as the seasons go by, living his passion under the gaze of a strange young girl... The man will teach her his passion of draft horse logging: this is a film about the idea of passing down, and how some encounters can lead to a life’s calling. The short film “Traces” shows today’s youth as the main force of the preservation of our forests. It also highlights of the emotional symbiosis between man, the animal and the forest.

By definition, the Equator is a region of stability. For millennia, the rhythms of the weather, and of human and animal life, have been constant. Now that’s changing. Outside influences are driving environmental, economic and social transformations of many kinds. In this episode, we visit a remote Colombian village where the reclusive culture is being changed by a young whale scientist; an Indonesian fishing family that is determined to remain cheerful as their home is swallowed by a rising sea; and a group of outrageous, male fashionistas in Brazzaville, Congo whose style aims to transform their community’s postcolonial attitudes.

Altitude sickness, a little-known illness. It is linked to ascending to a high altitude too quickly and people can die as a result... Whether you are sporty or not makes no difference, anyone can suffer from it. But there are solutions. We followed 7 Belgian enthusiasts who love pushing their boundaries! We followed them on their trek up to an altitude above 4,000 metres in order to try to understand altitude sickness. They share with us their joy, their suffering but, above all, their determination!

Tree Climbing Lions follows big cat biologist Alexander Braczkowski in his mission to understand the rare tree-climbing lions of Uganda. Using a new method of counting lions by identifying individuals with their unique whisker spots, Alex deploys remote camera traps and 4-8K RED cameras to accurately count the lion population in Queen Elizabeth National Park. As the lions can climb up to 40 feet in the air - sometimes in poisonous euphorbia trees - Alex uses drones to capture some of the first eye-level photography of lions in trees, even capturing cubs on one of their first tree climbs with their mother.

In Turtle Beach, new discoveries abound as Canadian naturalist and cameraman Hugo Kitching follows a team of international scientists on a groundbreaking expedition to uncover the mysteries of this rare phenomenon. The star of the ‘arribada’ is the olive ridley sea turtle, the most abundant and least studied of the world’s seven sea turtle species. In a world first, scientist Rold_n Valverde uses infrared cameras to delve into the previously hidden world of a turtle nest. This unprecedented access allows us to follow the baby turtles on their incredible journey from embryo to hatchling to the day they finally emerge from the nest and take their first perilous steps to the sea.

Sea turtles are some of Earth’s most majestic creatures. For over 100 million years, they’ve endured mass extinctions and played critical roles in maintaining food webs. But now they face a new threat - humans. Academy Award winner and turtle conservation champion Russell Crowe narrates the captivating tale of Bunji, a green sea turtle. From hatchling to adult, she travels through the Great Barrier Reef and thousands of miles into open ocean where we meet an astonishing range of creatures. Sea turtles remind us how interconnected we all are, and audiences will be moved to cherish these beautiful and vulnerable animals even more.

Papah?naumoku?kea Marine National Monument and the wildlife of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands are incredibly special. But marine debris is damaging the reefs and disrupting ecosystems. Now, people are united by the ocean to save this place -- by removing derelict fishing gear, non-biodegradable household waste, plastics and other debris, or by making a change in their daily lives.

The monarch butterfly migration is one of nature’s greatest events. This orangewinged wonder travels up to 4,500 km from all over North America to spend the winter hanging from oyamel fir trees in central Mexico’s mountain forests. I got to go there. Seeing tens of millions of butterflies dangling from the treetops is a truly breathtaking sight. But how does an animal with a brain the size of a poppy seed navigate to this one special place, especially since the last monarchs to make the trip lived 4 or 5 generations earlier? Get ready for an amazing story of science, instinct, and navigation

Discover how they endure the harsh Winter toward the budding months of Spring; navigating dangers and parenthood to reach Summer’s bounty; before Autumn’s race to fatten up rolls around once more... Welcome to Untamed Romania.

This year the world will spend over $100 billion on vitamins and supplements. Every week, a new benefit is claimed. Some doctors point to research that shows they can be lifesavers. Many others claim that most vitamin products are useless, and some are downright dangerous. All of this provokes confusion. In a world where even the scientists disagree, how do we decide whether to take them, or not? How do we separate the sense from the nonsense? In Vitamania, Dr Derek Muller takes us on an epic journey, a world-spanning investigation of vitamin science and history.

Rugged mountains in the North, gentle and hilly landscapes in the South and craggy cliffs along the coastline - a region of contrasts. Around 5.000 grey seals inhabit the 2,700 kilometres-long coasts. The young are born in the autumn and often have to endure devastating storms. Nature filmmaker HansPeter Kuttler spent two years photographing the Welsh countryside and now presents the fascinating nature of Great Britain’s Wild West from completely new perspectives.

WILDLIFE WARRIORS is a wildlife documentary series hosted by Dr. Paula Kahumbu. The aim of the series is to showcase conservation heroes at the front line and to learn about the species that they are saving. Watamu Turtles Fikiri Kiponda at the Local Ocean Trust has rescued and released over 1,000 endangered turtles in the last 20 years. We follow Fikiri as he studies the turtles in the sea, on land, monitors nests, and interacts with the local community who help save turtles in the Kenyan coastal town of Watamu. During the night patrol, we witness a turtle laying eggs.

Like a crime-fighting superhero of the high seas, Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson has spent his life sailing the globe to keep our oceans and their inhabitants safe. A daring ship’s captain with no fear of danger, Watson and his crews have confronted illegal whaling vessels from Europe to the Southern Ocean, seal hunters in Canada, and shark finners in Central America. Impervious to threats, with more than one nation issuing warrants for his arrest, Watson continues to intervene on behalf of his “clients”: the ocean creatures endangered by overfishing and illegal activities on the high seas.

A heated battle takes place in the North Sea. Confronted with dwindling marine resources, small-scale fishermen join forces with environmental activists. Together, they will fight against powerful industrial lobbies to ban electric pulse fishing, a highly efficient yet destructive fishing gear. Watt the Fish travels from fishing harbors to the corridors of the European Parliament to tell the story of ordinary people who fight tirelessly to maintain their traditional livelihoods and preserve sea life.

We The Reef takes us underwater and into the hearts of people who live with underwater worlds. We visit four coral reefs in Cuba and Florida, finding them so physically close, yet drastically distant in health--shaped by the human forces that are shaping the world. The emotional weight of both vibrant coral reef communities and environmental degradation is heavy. We feel the pain of a woman who realizes she is living in, depending on, and in love with a slowly decaying seascape, and the joy of a man who is overcome when describing the fountain of life fringing his beloved island community. And we are left with a heartfelt understanding of what is at stake for some of the region’s last remaining healthy reefs.

Whales live in a world so removed from our own that we can barely imagine their lives. Marine biologist and filmmaker Rick Rosenthal has filmed whales for much of his long career. Now he is on a quest to probe deeper into their lives, to learn more - comparing scientists’ observations against his own experience and just maybe, getting a glimpse of the world as it must seem to these ocean giants.

It is almost statistically impossible that Earth is home to the only living organisms that exist in the universe. But how do we locate and communicate with whatever, or whoever is out there? By exploring the depths of the ocean, scientists are getting closer to the stars and taking their learnings from underwater communication to apply it to outer space. “Whales and SETI” sets out to tell the unique story about how we may one day understand an extraterrestrial signal by better understanding the complex communication systems right here on our own planet--those of the humpback whale.

One word sums up the incredible variety of animals and plants on Earth. It’s the magic ingredient that enables the world to work smoothly.

When Old Growth Ends is an ode to the complex interweaving of the irreplaceable Tongass National Forest, during this last stand in defense of salmon, ancient trees and the cathedrals of the wild in Southeast Alaska. Currently falling under the protection of the 2001 Roadless Rule, prohibiting new roads or logging within undeveloped stretches of national forest, a 2019 statewide exemption to the Roadless Rule threatens the remaining old growth of this majestic forest ecosystem. Exploring the strongholds of industry and government threatening the Tongass, the film captures the beauty and the tragedy of this struggle through a mythopoetic lens. After premiering at South By Southwest (SXSW) in March 2018 the film has screened at Portland EcoFilm Festival 2018, Wild & Scenic Film Festival 2018, Humboldt State University 2019 and Lightning In A Bottle 2019.

They are the most iconic animals on Planet Earth-- voracious crocodiles, acrobatic birds, majestic elephants, stupendous whales. To see them is to marvel--and to ask a surprisingly challenging question: Where did these amazing creatures come from? The answers can be found in a new groundbreaking special, When Whales Walked: Journeys in Deep Time. Filmed on five continents, with access to top scientists and exciting fossil finds, it reveals new insights about deep time history--and draws important lessons about the future of life on earth.

Along the Arctic Coast, at the northmost point on American soil, we explore the inseparable bond between mother and child, the sacred and fragile moments after birth and the importance of protecting the place. A new bill to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from oil development has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives. We need your help to encourage House members to push the HR 1146 vote/Senate bill past the finish line. Please take action by going to Wilderness.org/arcticrefuge

At Canada’s northernmost edge lies a remote and barren wilderness: Ellesmere Island. The film follows a family of wolves as they struggle to raise their pups. Snow White and Alpha - the pack’s mother and father - are a dedicated couple. Their challenge: to raise pups in the brief arctic summer. With never-beforeseen footage, the film is a dramatic story of loyalty and devotion. It reveals the struggles and triumphs of a family working to survive in one of the last great wildernesses on Earth.

“The way to resist stress in any organism is to evolve in response to that stress,” says coral scientist Raphael Ritson-Williams from the California Academy of Sciences. “And to evolve, you need genetic diversity.” Although corals are clonal and can reproduce asexually, sex is the best way to maintain a diverse gene pool. That’s why scientists like Ritson-Williams and his collaborators at SECORE have turned to assisted sexual reproduction to help threatened corals survive on a changing planet.

Austria’s Alpine glaciers, ancient seas and mighty rivers have carved out giant mountains, caves and lakes - key to its wildlife today. Eagles, ibex, marmots and deer are iconic, but there are other, stranger creatures: Goosander ducks breed in hollows high in trees. Just a day old, long before they can fly, the newlyhatched ducklings must leap up to ten meteres to join their mother in the brook below. Through glacier melt, via waterfalls,streams and lakes, water finds its way downstream, creating habitats for lynx, wolves and foxes, but also owls, bats, frogs, dragonflies and water birds. They all find their home in Austria’s unforgettable landscapes, created by water’s endless cycle and ever-changing forms.

The Galapagos Islands - a small archipelago in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Its volcanic origins, predominant sparse vegetation and the extreme climatic conditions from the Tropics make survival a real challenge. Despite all these circumstances, these islands are in fact home to many of our planetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most unusual creatures. The English naturalist Charles Darwin developed his theory of evolution by observing them. We know today why there are so many odd animals on the Galapagos Islands and that they did not certainly come voluntarily: most are actually shipwrecked or stranded by storms or strong ocean currents

Despite being home to 68 million people in an area half the size of Germany, Karnataka is home to more tigers and elephants than any other place on earth. Wild Karnataka is the first time that the wildlife of a single state in India has been explored in such exquisite detail.

Korea is known as a modern, high tech nation; but beyond the bustle of the cities there’s a land of stunning natural beauty and remarkable wildlife. There are lush wetlands and mudflats in contrast to the soaring mountains and turbulent seas; and the beautiful goshawk, bottleneck dolphin and curious racoon dog thrive alongside Korea’s traditional people as they have for many thousands of years.

The notorious demilitarized zone of Korea has existed on the boundary of two warring nations for nearly 70 years where a tense standoff still remains. However, amidst the barbed wire fences and thousands of land mines, a unique natural wonderland from wild boar to giant hornets to rare cranes peacefully co-exist alongside the ashes of war.

World renowned orchid taxonomist and artist Stig Dalstrom and award-winning filmmaker and composer Darryl Saffer travel to the Australian island of Tasmania seeking the strange plants and legendary animals that inhabit this land. While stunningly beautiful, this land has a dark and tortured past. It is now striving towards a more enlightened cultural and environmental future.

Ewan McGregor narrates a captivating portrait of wild Shetland and traces the course of a breeding season from the depths of winter to high summer as the animals on the islands battle for survival. In stunning 4K footage, an orca pod hunts seals along the rocky coasts while a mother otter struggles to protect her twin cubs from marauding male otters and spring storms. We also meet some puffins, diving gannets and storm petrels nesting in an ancient Pictish tower.

Follow a group of mountain gorillas through the dense, steep jungle of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest; join researchers at the Ngogo Chimpanzee project for insights into the largest known and most studied chimpanzee community on Earth; and, for the very first time, witness Savannah elephants getting their dose of salt - from inside the dark and mysterious caves at the bottom of an ancient volcano’s crater. Welcome to ‘Wild Uganda’!

Experience the natural world through the eyes of the Vikings, when nature meets history in a journey showcasing the wildlife of the North Atlantic. Combining blue-chip natural history filmmaking and dramatic recreations, we travel from Norway to Newfoundland, just as the seafaring warriors did in 1,000 A.D. Experience the deep history and cultural respect the Vikings had with the land and sea: from the killer whales of the North Sea to the puffins and otters of the Scottish coast to the volcanic mounts of Iceland and the frozen tundra of Greenland.

Many dream of sandy beaches and turquoise seas, romantic inlets lined with palm trees and whiling the days away in a hammock. Every year, millions make their way to the world’s most famous coasts to enjoy the beachfront lifestyle. Some follow the call of relaxation; others, the call of the wild. Whether they are merely visiting or they call the coast home, humans have had to learn how to share these regions with others. To innumerable life-forms, the border between land and sea is an invaluable habitat. From inhospitable cliffs to tidepools, from reefs to sand dunes - all are home to members of the animal kingdom.

National Geographic filmmaker Bertie Gregory sails to the iconic Island of South Georgia. Together with its breathtaking scenery, this island claims one of the highest concentration of wildlife on the planet. Bertie captures the challenges faced by the 4 toughest animals that call this place home. Sass, teamwork, endurance, and uncanny city living are all techniques for surviving here. But this island hasn’t always thrived with life. From Captain Cook’s discovery of the island to the now abandoned whaling settlements, this island presents the very best and worst in our own human nature.

At the top of the food chain on Fraser Island off the coast of Australia is the dingo. The cameras follow a family with 9 pups as it overcomes the deaths of members, skirmishes with other packs, and a deadly forest fire, featuring a rarely documented case where an older male sibling helps his parents raise the puppies.

Amid the lush rainforest in Gabon, Africa, live rare monkeys with unforgettable faces. The male mandrill boasts magnificent blue cheeks with a bright red stripe down its nose, a trait used to establish hierarchy. With help from researchers, the episode captures the struggle to unseat an older alpha male, where the females play a decisive role.

The rainforests of Costa Rica in Central America is full of life, where over 70 species of lizards thrive. The 80-centimeter basilisk is a ferocious predator, while the iguana is herbivorous and can grow to be 2 meters. The episode features the basilisk’s ability to run across water, as well as how newly hatched iguanas live as a group to survive.

This series follows the day-to-day struggles of orphan orangutans at Nyaru Menteng, the largest primate rehabilitation center in the world. The centre has over 600 orphan orangutans, all carrying the weight of traumatic pasts, all learning how to be wild orangutans. The orangutans are students in a unique Jungle School system that has 4 separate stages. From babies just a few weeks old to young adults the orangutans make their way through jungle school. Following the stories of individual orangutan characters we come to understand what it takes to release an animal back into the wild and restore a species.

Seeing the fish he loves to catch disappear fifteen year old Jack Nixon enlists ocean conservationist Sylvia Earle in what becomes a years long quest to save a dying ocean. Explorers Brian Skerry, Captain Max Kennedy and a band of teenage aquanauts bolster expeditions to the high-seas killing fields of the industrial fleets to the rapidly melting polar ice of the Chukchi Sea. Harvard biologist Dr. E.O. Wilson, deep diving pioneer, Dr. Richard Pyle, and Stanford’s Dr. Barbara Block inform the mission. Apollo 8 astronaut Major General William Anders and activist Bill McKibben provide lessons of how humanity met past challenges. Sobered by a close examination of the daunting scale of the challenge, the teenagers find hope in nature’s ability to heal and the ways a previous generation overcame the global test of World War II.

Over the past century we have been losing some of our planet’s most majestic predators at an alarming rate. The United Nations observation of World Wildlife Day in 2018 highlighted the plight of Big Cats and galvanized support for the many global and national actions that are being under taken to save these iconic species.

In Yellowstone Wolf Dynasty: The Pack three key people who know the wolves best tell the story of the apex predators’ reintroduction to the park. Biologist Doug Smith’s tireless work helped establish a stable population of wolves, researcher Rick McIntyre had a record streak of observing them for 891 days in a row, and filmmaker Bob Landis spent over 7000 days filming in the park, documenting their behavior. Through their intimate accounts, we relive the dramatic ups and downs of the wolves’ 24 years in the park and review difficult challenges they still face gaining acceptance in the west today
