This film tells the epic, true story of explorer Henry Bates’ fascinating 11 year journey through the visually stunning and biodiverse Amazon rainforest. Audiences will be wowed by the mind-boggling examples of camouflage and mimicry and inspired by Bates’ endless curiosity and determination to explore the wilds of nature from the time he was a young boy.

Little known to the public, Bates made other crucial contributions to biology: identifying 8,000 species new to science and most importantly, putting forth the first ever case for the creation of a new species, which Charles Darwin called the “beautiful proof” for natural selection.

The Inuit and their predecessors adapted and thrived for thousands of years in what is arguably the harshest environment on earth. Today, the Arctic is the focus of intense research.

Join in on the ongoing mission to explore the Arctic, and hear the compelling stories of forays into this captivating place. Underlying these tales is the crucial role that ice plays in the northern environment and the changes that are impacting the people and animals who have adapted to this land of ice and snow.
