There are many exotic and endangered animals all around the world that are at risk of harm from many threats. While weather and urbanization can be great problems to some, the greatest threat may be something that cannot possibly be controlled – it is the power and threat of human beings that puts them at risk. The forces of human nature often cause many natural habitats and creatures to be put at risk, thus forcing man species to suffer.
Brink is a new online series from the Weather Channel UK that takes a look at the ways how people are trying to save different habitats and species from the threats that come with weather and other external affairs. Brink is the latest in the network’s Weather Films series.
Brink is about six people who are looking to search for ways to save different species from all parts of the world. These include many species that have been unfairly targeted by people for all kinds of reasons mostly relating to profit. The stories are heartbreaking at times but are hopeful and optimistic with regards to how different positive benefits can come from any effort.
The Weather Channel’s Brink has six short-form episodes that people can watch on the network’s website at uk.weather.com. These include stories of inspiration as people from many walks of life look for ways to help save the world.
The series opens with a look at the creator of a “jaguar corridor” used to help protect jaguars and to encourage population diversity. The story includes the man’s look at how he was heavily inspired by his struggles with stuttering and how he came to see how well he could communicate with animals.
The series also includes a look at the ways how different animals are being harmed in conditions that humans have created. These include the conditions at a bear bile farm and the threat imposed onto seals in Canada by hunters as well as black rhinos from poachers in Africa.
The stories all entail different topics about the ways how the people who are out to save these animals have developed strong connections with these animals. One of them has even worked to save and support dolphins after having a change of heart while working in the entertainment industry to train dolphins for show purposes.
This is all a part of the Weather Channel’s ongoing
film series dedicated to taking a closer look at the world around us and how it is made. This includes looking at not only the natural wonders and habitats of the world but also how they are being impacted today and what the future could hold for them unless new challenges are faced.
The Weather Channel’s Brink contains all sorts of stories about the ways how different animals are being threatened and what is being done to save them. The goal of the web series is to turn a focus on the ways how animals are treated and to find ways to call people to action. This is a very important series that is worth watching.
