Our Vanishing Wilderness

Watch Our Vanishing Wilderness

  • 1970
  • 1 Season

America is a huge country, and there are still many pockets of wilderness within it, but as development encroaches, these become more and more hard to come by. Hence, this is an important look at those parts of the country that are still wild. Seeing the beauty of these landscapes and the wonder of the creatures that inhabit them can be an important first step in truly appreciating their value. Humanity can live in harmony with the environment and the creatures of the Earth, but not if progress is allowed to go on unchecked, to the detriment of the land.
