Guardians of Nature (27 x 30 min. | 01 x 30 min. HD)

Humans have made the earth their playground. Unspoilt habitats fall victim to merciless exploitation, cleared or ravaged for things it is believed we cannot live without. But we are all part of nature and cannot survive without it. More and more people are realising that the environment is more than just a supplier of cheap and abundant materials. Many are getting involved in nature conservation projects. Some dedicate their fortune, others their time; some even risk their lives. Their aim is the same: to preserve our planet’s biodiversity for the future. These people are Guardians of Nature.
