Wetlands are perhaps the most important ecosystem on Earth. Yet, due to development, over 50% of U.S. wetlands have been destroyed, disappearing at therate of 300,000 acres each year. “The Wetland” explores our swamps and marches through the stories of people working to protect the land they love.
We uncover the hidden wonders of the Louisiana coastal march with Alligator Annie, former trapper turned tour-guide, who takes us on her boat through the spawning ground for half the nation’s seafood.
We meet conservation hero Marjory Stoneman Douglas, 100+ year old author of the bestseller “River of Grass,” who has championed her beloved Florida Everglades for over 50 years. And in the Tensas region of Louisiana, a businessman, a game warden and a farmer celebrate the victorious saving of 70,000 acres of forest.
V.I.E.W. Video is proud to present “The Wetlands” from the PBS series, “Conserving America.” Informative, entertaining and inspirational, it fosters an appreciation and understanding of our nation’s natural resources.
