Wild Ways

About the Show

NOVA: Showcasing new, cutting-edge solutions for making room for wildlife on an ever-more crowded planet. Since the start of the Industrial Revolution, human development has usurped the homelands of the largest mammals on Earth and confined them to parks and preserves. Recent research shows that these islands of habitat are too small and disconnected to sustain healthy populations of animals. A new approach, connectivity conservation, is attempting to link these isolated groups of wildlife in novel ways. From jaguars navigating the US-Mexico border to mountain lions crossing the Trans-Canada Highway and elephant families migrating across African savannahs, Wild Ways is a unique story about a new vision for re-assembling a fragmented planet.
