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 from Florida to California to Alaska to better understand how climate change is impacting some of North America’s most iconic creatures. First, Jeff uncovers precious sea turtle nests on the beach of Boca Raton and discovers how warming beaches are affecting developing turtles inside the egg. Later, Jeff makes his way to California to understand how drought and habitat loss is impacting the giant garter snake. Then, Jeff makes his way to the remote wilderness of Alaska where bison and musk ox are adapting to the rapidly changing Alaska ecosystem.
