Oceans
Reporting from Palmyra Atoll (one of the most remote coral atolls on Earth), the Bahamas, and from New York Harbor, host Dr. M. Sanjayan  introduces a vibrant community of scientists, engineers and fishermen who are discovering new ways to help maintain the remarkable productivity of oceans. He is aware of the vast threat facing our oceans, but standing in the water playing mid-wife to a lemon shark is just one of the moments that give him hope that we can change the way we influence our oceans – the wildest habitat on Earth.

Travel deep into the wild to take a fresh look at humankind’s relationship to the big animals that live alongside us. From cuddling baby pandas to avoiding man-eating tigers, Dr. M. Sanjayan investigates our changing relationships with the wilderness. The severe peril to extraordinary animals and their habitats is ever-present, but Sanjayan focuses on the powerful stories that prove animals and humans can thrive side by side. It’s a new kind of wild, but one on which we all depend.

 

Plains
Explore the giant herds that roam the wild grasslands of the plains. Home to the greatest gathering of animal life on the planet, they are also increasingly our bread basket – and among the most endangered places on Earth. Dr. Sanjayan follows a unique elephant conservation project in South Africa to witness efforts to save this endangered mammal. His journey uncovers a vital new understanding about how both humans and predators can help the animals found on the plains.
