Never before has there been such an insightful and timely wildlife series.
The California Condor and the Rhino are just two of the world’s many endangered animals. Everyday nearly one hundred species from tiny plants to large animals disappear from the earth forever and ecologists estimate that unless we head off the current trend, one fifth of the world’s millions of species of plants and animals will become extinct over the next thirty years. We travel to several places around the world to search out endangered species and find out what’s being done to save them. In the U.S. reintroduction programs are underway for the California Condor and the American crocodile is being carefully studied in southern Florida. In South Africa, the white rhino has made a tremendous comeback and in North Africa, two unique species are still hovering very close to extinction.
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.
