EDEN AT THE END OF THE WORLD


EDEN AT THE END OF THE WORLD (USA, 2008, 57 min.)

Carved by fearsome winds, this last great wilderness of its kind is a rare and precious haven for some of earth’s most indestructible creatures. Covering more than half a million square miles of Chile and Argentina, this wild place is known as Patagonia. But there is trouble in paradise as human activity is transforming the landscapes and seascapes, perhaps forever. The animals, including guanaco, condor, penguins, orcas, parrots and elephant seals that have endured for millions of years in this realm of endless, punishing winds face the biggest challenge of their lives. Now champions of wildlife are fanning out across this spectacular place, racing to save an eden at the end of the world. Through a partnership with the Wildlife Conservation Society and the investment bank Goldman Sachs, more than 700,000 acres of Patagonia have been set aside for preservation. Produced by National Geographic Television. Producer: Doug Bertran; Executive Producers: John Bredar and Keenan Smart, National Geographic Natural History Unit.
