The Age of Nature is a three-part documentary series exploring how an increased awareness of the natural world is leading to a new chapter in the story of both humanity and the planet. With stunning photography, the series focuses on the resiliency of Earth’s ecosystems through stories of success, as scientists, citizens and governments act to fix past mistakes and restore the environment.

With the current pandemic exposing the fragility and vulnerability of humankind, the balance of nature and our relationship with it is more important than ever. Narrated by Uma Thurman, The Age of Nature premieres Wednesdays beginning October 14 at 10:00pm and continuing to October 28.

Filmed on seven continents, The Age of Nature presents creative ideas from around the globe for dealing with such pressing issues as climate change, animal extinction, and environmental degradation.

Each episode highlights some of the latest scientific research that helps us understand the workings of the planet and explores effective strategies for restoring the environment, re-wilding landscapes and maintaining a balance between species.

The series examines the work of a diverse international scientific community as well as indigenous citizen activists committed to bringing about change in their local communities.
