LOOK NATURE IN THE EYE
WITH THE LAUNCH OF NAT GEO WILD MONDAY MARCH 29, 2010
Traverse the Globe for the Most Intimate, Extraordinary and Unforgettable Stories of the Animal Kingdom
For more than 30 years, National Geographic has been the leader in wildlife programming. Now, against a global backdrop of increasingly urgent conservation challenges facing wildlife, Nat Geo Wild is giving the animal kingdom center stage as it features the work of some of the world’s foremost explorers, filmmakers and scientists.
Scheduled to launch Monday March 29, 2010 in both standard and high definition, Nat Geo Wild will traverse the globe to bring you the most extraordinary stories of our natural world in more compelling and visually dynamic ways than ever before. New series and specials will feature the latest technology to immerse viewers in the mysterious and entertaining lives of nature’s ferocious fighters and gentle creatures of land, sea and air.
Nat Geo Wild premiere specials, new series and blue chip programming will include Africa’s Lost Eden, which takes you to war-torn Mozambique, where park rangers are desperately trying to execute one of the most ambitious animal relocation efforts in history and restore one of their country’s greatest natural treasures. Then, travel to Jaipur, India, where an audacious troop of Rebel Monkeys is on a crime spree. In Expedition Wild with Casey Anderson, the naturalist treks to Yellowstone and Alaska’s Kodiak Island to learn more about wild bear behavior — and teach these skills to his grizzly pal, raised in captivity. Two National Geographic Explorers lead you through very different paradises: Mireya Mayor delves deep into Congo’s forests to enter the private world of the Mystery Gorillas, and Enric Sala plunges into shark-filled waters to learn the secrets of Predator Island.
Get closer to the world of animals, and get ready for a wild ride!
