Changing Planet 2

Conservation scientist Dr. M. Sanjayan explores how communities from Australia to the Arctic are confronting climate change and creating innovative solutions.


CHANGING PLANET returns for a second year to revisit some of our planet’s most vulnerable ecosystems and provide updates on how communities are working to develop resilience in the face of climate change. Two new hosts, Ella Al-Shamahi, a paleoanthropologist and stand-up comic, and Ade Adepitan, a television presenter, Paralympian and children's author, join global conservation scientist and CEO of Conservation International Dr. M. Sanjayan to uncover this year’s stories.

The series travels from Brazil to California, Greenland to the Maldives, Kenya to Cambodia to chart how inspiring individuals and communities are making progress — and facing setbacks — over the last 12 months.

Over the last year, much has happened to report, from the devastating effects of drought in Kenya to the Maldives, where new scientific discoveries offer hope for the world’s coral reefs. “We have an opportunity to do things properly,” said Sanjayan. “We have the inherited wisdom, we have the science, and we have the tech to understand when things are going wrong and why. Now we need the money and political muscle to implement what needs doing.”
