Take an in-depth look at our changing world and the place animals have in helping us survive. From the oceans to our backyards, we’ll take an up close look at what we can learn from whales, horseshoe crabs and birds, the role bees play in our well-being and food supply, and how changing habitats have driven bears, deer and even coyotes into our gardens, backyards and city streets. Tinabeth Pina hosts with reports from Mike Gilliam, Donna Hanover, Magalie LaGuerre-Wilkinson and Vianora Vinca.
