Saving Half The Earth

Season 7, Episode 3 of 4

The E.O. Wilson Foundation continues to lead the movement to preserve half the earth's biodiversity. How are they applying Dr. Wilson's philosophy to identify biodiverse hot spots? One of E.O. Wilson's proteges, Ben Raines, shows us why the Mobile River basin has earned the title "America's Amazon." In middle Georgia, the Ocmulgee lands could be a model for how a national park embraces the influence of the indigenous people whose history predates ancient Egyptian pyramids and whose lives are still tied to their original homelands there.
