INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Balancing the Endangered and Invasive Among Us

 

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I gave several environmental agencies a difficult assignment: collaborate, prioritize and come up with a list of the top five indigenous species we must save – and the top five invasive species we must eliminate. The nene (goose), ‘io (hawk) and honu (sea turtle) might be on one list. The coqui frog, miconia and fire ants could be found on the other. Find out the results in this live discussion. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Coordinating Group on Alien Pest Species and The Nature Conservancy were the groups who collaborated on the lists.

NATURE
Touching the Wild

 

Joe Hutto has dedicated seven years of his life to “becoming” a wild mule deer. Ordinarily, the deer herd would run from any human, but these keenly intelligent animals come to regard this stranger as one of their own. As he crosses the species divide, Hutto taps into a new understanding of these elusive animals. His joy in his new family is infectious, but this human predator also learns to see the world from the point of view of prey.

As the first fat raindrops hit the dust, southern Africa’s biggest animal migration gets underway. In a never-ending quest for grass and water, the striped herds undertake an annual epic trek across the vast lunar landscape of the Kalahari’s Makgadikgadi Pans.

Honey Badgers: Masters of Mayhem

 

This “thug of the savannah” is one the most fearless animals in the world, renowned for its ability to confront grown lions, castrate charging buffalo and shrug off the toxic defenses of stinging bees, scorpions and snakes. Little is known about its behavior in the wild or why it is so aggressive. This film follows badger specialists in South Africa who take on these masters of mayhem in ways that must be seen to be believed.
