Hosted by Princeton evolutionary biologist Shane Campbell-Staton, the six-part “Human Footprint” airs Wednesday evenings in July and August, starting July 5, at 9 p.m. ET.
The PBS series takes viewers from swamps to research labs and from forests to city centers to explore how humans are transforming the planet.
“We are so intricately connected to the world around us in so many ways,” Campbell-Staton said when “Human Footprint” was announced. “I hope this series helps others to see and think about those connections in new ways.”
“I study how animals adapt to the changes we are making to the planet, but this journey really helped me to better understand the depth and breadth of our impact.”
The series covers invasive species, wolves, the science and history of cotton, and more.
