Never before has there been such an insightful and timely wildlife series.
From the worship of animals and animal gods, to snake charmers, no culture on earth has been so completely entwined with its wildlife than that of India. And today that very close relationship between people and wild animals continues, in the mythology, religion and everyday lives of most Indians. But what is undergoing a very rapid change, is the wildlife itself. Today, India’s wild animals are sharing a land that comprises 3 percent of the earth's land mass with 20 percent of the world human population, which continues to grow at an alarming rate. Our host takes us there to seek out some of the most endangered species on the planet, and find out how these animals, historically revered in Indian culture, are now faring in the face of severe habitat encroachment.
The cameras of Safari tell a compelling story, never shying away from showing the whole picture. From the endearing and playful, to the unexpected and deadly;Safari provides an unflinching portrait of animals in the wild with emphasis on endangered species.
Safari is hosted by naturalist John Ross, who devoted his life to exploring the natural world and documenting its secret treasures. As a wildlife expert, he provides a unique insider’s look into the lives and behaviors of animals in the untamed reaches of the planet.
