I struggle to watch these nowadays. It's just so much of, "that's going to be extinct soon". :sigh:

I have more confidence. We will lose some many many but let's face mega fauna was on the way out regardless and there are few bounce back like the North American bison. I like the rewilding that is going on and some like racoons are shifting continents.

Ocean over fishing is a real threat ....coral reefs are showing more resilience than first thought.

We've cancelled the next ice age due so who knows ...might actually end up with more surviving :whistle: :think:

Still the quality of the photography and some of the techniques are astonishing ...better to enjoy what we do have than regret what we might lose.

Cue all of the pricks online moaning that they dare mention climate change as a fact on the BBC.

Anyway, I'm very excited about this. The chimpanzee and painted wolf episodes of Dynasties were two of the best wildlife documentaries I've ever seen. I hope this series is just as good.
