Canis Lupis Colorado – Ghosts are stirring in Colorado’s high country. Guardians of a delicate balance, they haunt the trees, the water, the animals – the very fabric of the land. Gray wolves shaped this place for eons only to disappear nearly overnight. This is the story of the past, present, and future of Colorado’s now extinct native wolf population. We’re at a tipping point: The future of our public wildlands, and the health of vast ecosystems are at stake, and the choice is up to us.

Nobody Dies in Longbearyen – They say that when you’re hit by the polar bug, you never leave. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Travel to the northernmost city in the world to find out why nobody dies in Longyearbyen, or so goes the rumor. But, there is something deadly, long buried in the permafrost.

Lost in Light – Exactly how does light pollution affect our view of the night skies? This piece shows how much the night sky view improves as you move away from city lights.

Wildlife and the Wall – Explore the heart of the Big Bend, last true wilderness in Texas, to learn what effects building a border wall might have on wildlife dispersal, migratory corridors and access to the Rio Grande, the only water source in this harsh desert environment.

One Hundred Thousand Beating Hearts – Hear the riveting story of fourth generation cattleman Will Harris, whose evolution from industrial commodity cowboy to sustainable, humane food producer while breathing new life into his community, has been left behind and forgotten by the unrelenting sweep of agribusiness.

Growing Change – Jim Cochran walked into his strawberry fields sprayed with pesticide as the sun rose. His eyes watered, his head spun and he started to shake. From this experience, Jim helped invent the organic strawberry industry, pioneering and profiting from a healthier crop. Then he turned his attention to the health of his workers.

Straws – Used once and tossed, billions of plastic straws wind up in landfills and streets, finding their way to oceans. Actor/Director Tim Robbins narrates the history and story of Straws – and marine researchers, citizen activists, and business owners discuss how it’s possible to create a sea of change, one straw at a time.
