Whenever humans enter the wilderness – no matter if they are scientists, cameramen or just outdoor fans – they will face unforgettable encounters: the discovery of new species in the jungles of New Guinea, the scary moments when a group of white sharks surround a diving team off the coast of South Africa and the dedicated work of wildlife warriors who try to save jaguars and gorillas to name a few. Wildlife film makers sometimes risk life and limb too. In Siberia Uwe Anders is taken by surprise by an uninvited guest – a polar bear. Wildlife film makers experience also many emotionally touching moments: Oliver Goetzl and Ivo Nörenberg are witnessing a wolf approaching a lone newborn bison. But just in time its mother arrives. The ten part series shows the funniest but also the most dangerous and the most emotional moments in the wild.
