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.

The Passenger Pigeon’s Flight to Extinction

 

The centenary of this recent extinction offers an opportunity for this film to sharply focus new attention on habitat conservation and species survival ― and help us avoid the fate of the passenger pigeon for future species. With cutting-edge CGI animation techniques, this film recreates the glory of passenger pigeons in flight as well as the ways in which 19th century humans destroyed them all ― with ruthless, no-limits shooting. The film highlights the important lessons of the past to offer solutions to the immediate challenges species face.
