Raw Nature

A Thrilling Look at Wildlife Conservation Comes to Animal Planet with Two New Perspectives – Investigation Earth with Jeff Corwin and Raw Nature – Starting July 17

Open your eyes to the effects of human development on wildlife around the world with two edgy new series, Investigation Earth with Jeff Corwin and Raw Nature.

This immersive perspective on conservation starts Thurs., July 17 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT during Animal Planet’s month-long freeview* with Investigation Earth with Jeff Corwin.

In this enlightening one-hour special, animal expert Jeff Corwin gets up-close-and-personal with endangered animals all over the world to find out how humans have altered animal habitats in the wilderness. Corwin’s passion for conservation and his love for animals is infectious – but more importantly, the cutting-edge scientific research he conducts in the wild is key to helping save animal life around the globe.

As a trained biologist and anthropologist, Corwin’s findings become part of the solution as he spotlights the conservation challenges that humans are both creating and solving.

Following Investigation Earth with Jeff Corwin, is the heart-pounding series Raw Nature. Premiering Wed., July 30 at 9 p.m. ET/10 p.m. PT, this five-part series presents a striking new entertainment perspective on animal adventures with non-experts.

Raw Nature follows filmmakers Matt Renner, Mitch Tanen, Gianny Truttman and Anneli Gericke as they travel across the world to document first-hand accounts of dedicated wildlife professionals working to help animals survive human encroachment. Used to filming the action – not being part of it – the producers are caught off guard with their too-close-for-comfort encounters with some of the planet’s deadliest creatures, including Komodo dragons, white rhinos and giant anacondas.

With conservation as its focus, this series offers an unprecedented look at the intersection between human nature and animal instinct and is a serious reminder that the world needs balance to ensure its own survival.
