Nature  "Clash: Encounters of Bears and Wolves"  Two great predators encounter each other in Yellowstone National Park. In each encounter, the opposition must be measured, strengths must be tested and risks weighed; each time, one or the other have the tactical advantage. Their encounters illustrate how all animals in the park must assess, decide and act - to fight or flee.G

Wild!  "Orangutans: The Last Trimate"  In the late 60s, legendary anthropologist Louis Leakey appointed three women to study and care for the great apes of the world: Dian Fossey (gorillas), Jane Goodall (chimpanzees), Birute Galdikas (orangutans). Thirty-five years later Birute is still there, based in the appropriately named Camp Leakey, and is responsible for the longest study of an animal species by a single person ever conducted. Known as the "Trimates", Birute is the least recognized of the three women, yet her crusade is no less compelling.G

Alaska, The World, and Wally Hickel   Throughout his career, Wally Hickel confounded friend and foe alike because he defied the easy stereotypes of "environmentalist" and "businessman." He was convinced he'd discovered a novel philosophy - inspired by the history of Alaska, and centered around the concept of "the commons" - that could show us how to balance development with preservation, satisfy our need for energy, and, he believed, even overcome poverty itself. Fired from his Secretary of Interior post by President Nixon for his public opposition to the Vietnam War - his letter to the President was front page news in 1970 - he returned to his beloved Alaska.
