Description
The highly acclaimed PBS Conserving America four-part series provides an entertaining and inspiring look at how Americans of all ages are taking action to preserve our natural heritage. Produced in association with The National Wildlife Federation, the documentary depicts ordinary citizens working together to accomplish noble goals. Each video in the series features gorgeous footage of the landscapes and animals residents are attempting to protect. Conserving America: The Wetlands confronts the fact that wetlands are the most important ecosystems on earth, yet, due to development, over 50 percent of the nation's wetlands have been destroyed. Wetlands continue to vanish at a rate of 300,000 acres each year. This episode of the series explores America's swamps and marshes and the unique people who have dedicated themselves to the preservation of this significant resource. Meet Alligator Annie and take a boat trip down the Louisiana coastal marsh. Learn how century-old Marjory Stoneman Douglas, author of River of Grass, has championed the Florida Everglades for more than 50 years. Other tapes in the Conserving America series include, The Rivers, Champions of Wildlife, and The Challenge of the Coast. ~ Sally Barber, Rovi
