“Eden: Untamed Planet” is a new series which looks at the secrets of the few regions that are isolated from the rest of the world and have been  largely protected from human interference.   As the programme’s webpage says,  life exists as nature intended. 

The series skicks off in Borneo, home to 60,000 species of plants and animals and is very biodiverse indeed.  Watch out for proboscis monkeys, orangutan babies,   caterpillars and a lot more!

The programme warns that orangutans have lost 80% of their habitats in the last two decades – their numbers have dropped hugely.

Please visit our page listing orangutan charities to see how you can help and please watch the series.  There are six programmes and I will put up information about ways to help along the way.

Please also take a look at the Bornean Sun Bear Rescue Conservation Centre which is a is a sun bear rescue and rehabilitation facility being developed in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo.

The episodes of "Eden:  Untamed Planet" cover:

  • Borneo: Sacred Forest - home to 60,000 plants and animals, of which 10% are unique.  More species are discovered every day.
  • The Namib:  Skeleton Coast and Beyond which covers the world's oldest desert

Desert Lion Conservation  gathers data on the desert lions in the area, undertakes research and collaborates with the government and agencies to further lion conservation and reduce human-lion conflict
Giraffe Conservation works to conserve giraffe populations 
- The Conservation Institute has informatoin about the Namib Desert
- Elephant Human Relations Aid  is "to implement practical solutions that help combat elephant-human conflict, and thereby secure a future for Namibia’s desert elephants."

  • Luangwa:  The Emerald Valley, which sits at the end of East Africa's Great Rift Valley, and which experiences an annual flood of the Luangwa River
  • Galapagos:  Enchanged Isle - home to the Giant Tortoises and home to 2,000 species found nowhere else - 97% of its reptiles and mammals are unique
  • Patagonia:  at the far tip of South America, this is a land frozen in time and called "The End of the World".
  • Alaska: The Last American Frontier - with possibly the richest temperate rainforests at all

The areas covered are visiting “delicately balanced, species-rich, unique ecosystems” and nature now needs our help to make sure they stay that way.  We cannot do without them.

Please let’s all see if we can take just even one action to make a difference and protect nature as the series unfolds.
