This is a powerful series connecting viewers to the planet. Award winning wildlife television presenter and producer Bonné de Bod is known for her ability to put wildlife researchers, vets and environmental scientists at ease on-screen. Throughout the series she brings out the warmth and passion that these top scientists have for their research subjects. Through their eyes, we also get to know more about the iconic wildlife or pristine wildernesses they have dedicated their lives to. In experiencing life on the ground with these scientists who are unlocking the mysteries of Mother Nature, Bonné travels to isolated, wild locations to meet these dedicated people, who not only work with creatures large and small, but have realized their dreams of doing their “9-to-5” in the wild. These interactions give us uplifting insights into the human spirit, but this is also a journey of discovery for Bonné, as she immerses herself into their lives to find out what’s at the heart of their cutting-edge research for the natural world… and she also finds out if they are truly fulfilled.
