Starring: In Association With Discovery Channel
Across the world scientists, activists and biologists dedicate their lives to studying some of the world’s rarest, most endangered species. Through years of close observation these individuals, often working against traditional scientific thought,have come to understand their animals better than anyone.They are the CHAMPIONS OF THE WILD.
WOLVES The Wolf was once the most widely distributed land mammal in the world, and reigned in the most of the northern hemisphere. As the human race pushed back the
frontiers the animals feared and loved to hate, that man made it into a myth and legend. They were driven from the land, now it’s only the wildest and most remote wilderness
that hears the haunting call of the wolf.
LEMURS The remarkable ring-tailed lemur has existed for 60 million years. But unless steps are taken now, it soon will be extinct. 80% of the forests of Madagascar, where the Lemurs live, have been destroyed. 90% of Lemur species
have disappeared forever. Dr. Lisa Gould first saw ring-tailed lemurs in 1984,and she immediately fell in love. Her passion drove her to a remote research centre in southern Madagascar where she now lives, studying the lemur’s intriguing behavior and matriarchal social structure.
