Lords of Nature: Life in a Land of Great Predators on PBS
Top predators may hold a key to life itself.
Can people and predators coexist? Can we afford not to?
Birds, butterflies, beaver and antelope, wildflowers and frogs — could their survival possibly be connected to top predators like the wolf and cougar? Narrated by Peter Coyote, Green Fire Productions has created a captivating documentary that goes behind the scenes with leading scientists to explore the role top predators play in restoring and maintaining ecosystems and biodiversity.
Wolves and cougars, once driven to the edge of existence, are finding their way back -- from the Yellowstone plateau to the canyons of Zion, from the farm country of northern Minnesota to the rugged open range of the West. LORDS OF NATURE: Life in a Land of Great Predators tells the story of science now discovering the great carnivores as revitalizing forces of nature, and a society now learning tolerance for the beasts they had once banished.
Lords of Nature shows vividly the tremendous importance of large carnivores like wolves to the landscape. It will be broadcast Wednesday, February 23 at 9:00PM on Albuquerque's TALNET, KNMD/KNME World. It will also be broadcast on Portales/Yuma KENW-3 (3.1) on Monday, February 28 at 11:00AM.
Invite your friends and family, tape it, and share it with as many people as you can. It's very motivating and informative-the kind of film that can change minds.
