This week we have stories of discovering new species, those that have made a home out of an unusual piece of land, efforts to preserve some less familiar breeds of livestock, and the science that shows us how we can help save one of our sweetest insect friends.
Living Planet: Planes, Trains, Automobiles
Lower prices helped democratize air travel, but flying is one of the most carbon-heavy actions a person can take. We look at Sweden's No Fly campaign, take a journey on a night train and visit a city in Spain that is mostly car free.
Living Planet: Adaptation & Change
How do we inspire the fundamental changes that are needed to safeguard our planet? On this program, we look at some novel ideas, from restoring peatlands to their natural state to climate change resistant apples.
Living Planet: Not so fantastic
Today on the show, we're taking a look at our plastic world — from the oceans, to its place in our homes, to its original source. What can we do now about our plastic problems and what do we still need to figure out?
Living Planet: Extinction and invasion
This week on Living Planet, we hear about the people protesting extinction — our own, to be exact. And we examine how climate change is bringing insects and the diseases they carry to new places around the world.
