Introducing Wildlife Nation with Jeff Corwin, airing every weekend on ABC stations nationwide. 

Through the expertise of biologist and conservationist Jeff Corwin and Defenders of Wildlife, this weekly television series educates and empowers future generations to work together to preserve and protect the planet's most astounding wildlife and their natural habitats. 

Join host Jeff Corwin on an epic adventure to the Sierra Nevada mountains of California to discover the effects of a devastating drought that’s plagued the Golden State for years. Jeff explores the aftermath of the massive Caldor Fire and meets the brave firefighters on the frontlines of climate change. Then, Jeff travels to Washington State to connect with two vital and threatened species: the resourceful American beaver and the endangered Pygmy rabbit. Jeff works alongside conservationists fighting to protect these amazing animals and the ecosystems where they live.
