Equator From The Air

Equator From The Air sees wildlife cameraman Gordon Buchanan make an epic round-the-world journey to investigate the pressures on some of the Earth’s richest and most spectacular habitats.

During the series, we discover how aerial technology is transforming the work of conservationists fighting to protect the equator’s dazzlingly varied wildlife, and meet scientists searching for new ways to defend this beautiful belt around the planet, for the sake of the animals and people who live there.

Using helicopters, light aircraft, drones and satellite sensing, this is an eye-opening and inspiring health check on our planet from the air at a defining moment for the natural world.

Equator From The Air began in May 2019 on BBC Two and iPlayer.
