WIN! 'Nature: The Serengeti Rules’ on DVD!
Travel back in time, from the Arctic Ocean to Pacific tide pools, with a pioneering group of scientists who make surprising discoveries that transform human understanding of nature and ecology.
Based on a book of the same name, The Serengeti Rules had its theatrical premiere at Tribeca Film Festival and has won awards at the 2018 Wildscreen Panda Awards and Jackson Hole Science Media Awards.
NATURE presents one of the most important but untold science stories of our time - a tale with profound implications for the fate of life on our planet. Beginning in the 1960s, a small band of young scientists headed out into the wilderness, driven by an insatiable curiosity about how nature works.
Immersed in some of the most remote and spectacular places on Earth - from the majestic Serengeti to the Amazon jungle; from the Arctic Ocean to Pacific tide pools - they discovered a single set of rules that govern all life.
These pioneers learned that "keystone" species can make or break the ecosystems they live in. The role of keystones is both revelatory and surprising: sea otters help kelp forests flourish, supporting everything from salmon to eagles; wolves enable rivers to run clear and help forests thrive; and the humble wildebeest controls the numbers of trees, butterflies, elephants, and even giraffes on the savanna.
Now, in the twilight of their eminent careers, these five unsung heroes of modern ecology - Bob Paine, Jim Estes, Mary Power, Tony Sinclair, and John Terborgh - share the stories of their adventures, reveal how their pioneering work flipped views of nature on its head, and give humanity a chance to reimagine the world as it could and should be.
