A Walk Through The Land of 1,000 Hills
Chema Domenech, Kelly Carpenter, Ian McLeod | 2019 | 11 min
Claver Ntoyinkima, a native park ranger, shares the secrets of Nyungwe National Park in Rwanda as he guides us through the forest, one of the most biodiverse places in the world. Twenty-five years after the devastation of the Rwandan Civil War, the park is now one of the best-conserved montane rainforests in Central Africa. As Claver walks through the forest we uncover the origins of his conservation values and the history of an ecosystem that survived one of Rwanda's darkest periods.

Horse Rich and Dirt Poor
Ben Masters, Charles Post | 2019 | 16 min
Wild horses are caught between an incredibly polarized and emotionally charged debate aiming to write their future in the American West. The result of this debate is a legal stalemate causing wild horse numbers to continue rising well beyond unsustainable levels, causing irreversible damage to public lands. Horse Rich and Dirt Poor follows ecologist Charles Post as he explores America's pressing wild horse issue and the affects it has on the surrounding ecosystem.

(Re)Connecting Wild - Restoring Safe Passage
Jake Willers, Alyson Andreasen, NineCaribou Productions, LLC | 2019 | 12 min
This is the remarkable story of the decade-long effort by the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) and its partners to improve human safety by re-connecting a historic mule deer migration that crosses over both US-93 and I-80 in rural Elko County, Nevada. Witness the wildlife crossing structures along I-80 from construction to the restoration of safe passage for migratory mule deer to more than 1.5 million acres of summer and winter habitat.

Bears of Durango
Dusty Hulet | 2018 | 59 min
Dive headfirst into bear dens with the biologists studying how human development affects bear behavior. In 2011, Colorado Parks and Wildlife initiated a major research effort to address increases in human-black bear conflicts. A team of wildlife researchers led by Dr. Heather Johnson has spent the past six years investigating the factors driving those increases and the effects of expanding human development on bear populations.
