Sounds of Survival
Katie Garrett | 2018 | 8 min
Deep in the emerald cloud forests of Cusuco National Park of Honduras, scientists are on a quest to record the never-before-heard call of the endangered "exquisite spike-thumb frog" (Plectrohyla exquisita). What ensues is both a delightful portrait of the process of scientific discovery and an inspiring example of the power of sound as a tool for conservation.

Andy Laub | 2019 | 21 min
In the high slopes of the Andorran alpine ecosystem, Earthwatch scientists and volunteers are studying the effects of climate change on plants and wildlife to help manage this increasingly fragile environment. EARTHWATCH | Wildlife in the Changing Andorran Pyrenees chronicles one day in the life of that research.

Bare Existence

A behind the scenes look into the plight of the polar bear, Bare Existence showcases the biologists on the front lines of protecting these species as they battle against the effects of climate change threatening their existence.
