Paradise Preserved

5 x 52' / HD

This series of documentaries tells the stories of five exceptional and fantastically beautiful landscapes. They represent role models for new approaches to nature conservation: working with people, not against them – that’s the maxim. Instead of banning inhabitants, businesses and tourists from these species-rich territories, some of the areas' natural resources are exploited – responsibly. And it's producing remarkably successful results! This five-part series about the fruitful collaboration between mankind and nature follows in the tradition of the series 'Islands of the Future' and 'Water Is Our Future,' dealing with sustainable energy and water solutions.
