On Wednesday, November 30, “Priceless” will be broadcast on the National Geographic Channel at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT.
In the newest episode of the Emmy-Award winning program, actor and Years of Living Dangerously correspondent Aasif Mandvi sets off on a quest to understand just how much of a threat climate change poses to wildlife.
Shifting climate patterns will have a catastrophic effect on Africa’s wildlife and people, and the expected rise of 2 degrees Celsius could drive as much as 40% of Africa’s mammals into critically endangered or extinct status by 2080.
Species around the world are disappearing at an alarming rate, and climate change is only worsening the trend — scientists have found that changing temperatures are accelerating species loss.
Mandvi travels to Kenya’s Amboseli National Park to speak with AWF’s Fiesta Warinwa who has witnessed the region’s declining elephant population and worked on the frontlines to protect the threatened giants. Increased drought and irregular rainfall are forcing humans and wildlife to compete for increasingly scarce land and water resources, compounding threats like poaching and loss of habitat.
Along the way, Mandvi learns about the interconnectedness of nature, and how the disappearance of even a single species can have unpredictable negative consequences on the ecosystem.
