To tell this story, Anderson Cooper, Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Animal Planet's Jeff Corwin traveled to some of the most remote and remarkable places on Earth.

this documentary reminded me that what we(mankind) did for our benefits has posed a great threat to our planet. But on seeing this, I realized we still have a grip on moderating the damages we've caused. In terms of that, i was tremendously impressed by the segements related to inserting wolves in the yellowstone park. that was one great demonstration showing me that our efforts to save our planet can make a siginificant differences !( Actually, I was toooo ignorant that one specie is capable of playing such a meaningful role in the nature!!! )
furthermore,I was so shocked that people in africa emitting the least amount of CO2 have been suffering that much from the global warming.
It is really platitude to say this but How ironic this is!!!
It makes me feel so bad about them and become conscious of what I squandered..
I personally thanked CNN for letting me
be educated germane to grave problems we are facing which need to be rectified anytime soon. I hope by buying this DVD you can learn something out of this~~~
"Planet in Peril" erases all lines on the map. Africa is at our doorstep. China isn't so far way. Madagascar is not just a fantasy. The Amazon jungle is our forest. Greenland is in our back garden. A Breath-taking journey...
One land. One people. One family. One struggle.
The wildlife and animals on our beautiful planet are the most delicate of our creatures. They cannot speak literally, but through their beauty and sound we hear them all around us. However, day by day that universal "song" is becoming quieter. If we could no longer hear them, the silence and loneliness would break our hearts. We would be alone, and how frightening that would be.
Common sense would tell us that we would be next...
"Planet in Peril" conveys the striking contrast of the joy in perfect beauty and the sadness of perfect misery. To hear and feel the emotions as dear fellow humans, fellow family members, explain their fear, pain and sorrow over human losses that can never be compensated by anyone except God.
We should all be grateful that "Planet in Peril", took the time to document and show us the big picture of what is happening to our planet, to our home. To listen and learn. Humbly.
What we don't treasure we often lose.
"Planet in Peril" causes one to reflect upon the fact that we must wake up and realize we are the caretakers of this earth, it's our duty. Our sacred duty.
"A man is truly ethical only when he obeys the compulsion to help all life which he is able to assist, and shrinks from injuring anything that lives."

Shipping was fast and the set is now all wrapped up to put under the tree ... Merry Christmas!

The first half of the show was great, it's too bad the other DVD didn't play on any of 10 different devices we tried. This seems to be an issue with this manufacturer. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Jason F.
