At the Earth's extremes, animals are adapting to keep pace with a planet that is changing at superspeed. In the wake of environmental changes that are pushing entire ecosystems to the edge of survival, this new five-part series showcases surprising stories of hope and resilience from around the world.
Heading out across the globe to distant wilds and modern urban environments, five episodes track how animals are moving, using ingenuity to adapt their behavior, and even evolving in unexpected ways. The stories these animals have to tell us are so powerful that they are re-writing our understanding of evolution and revealing the true pace and scale at which the world is shifting.
At the front lines of this rapid change are the scientists, filmmakers and local communities recording the animals' stories. They show that we too can help, and that if we work with nature in planned conservation efforts, nature can do more than survive: it can bounce back.
