The Future is animal.
Exploring nature, ecology, science and tech like never before, biologist and wildlife adventurer Patrick Aryee sets out to bring humanity’s future into focus. Animals and nature have been specializing, perfecting, and evolving for nearly 4 billion years, ensuring life thrived in almost every place on Earth. This epic six-part docu-series, filmed across 4 continents, explores how humanity can solve many of the fundamental issues facing us today by “mimicking” the incredible innovations found in nature. Each adventure in the series focuses on a different challenge, and demonstrates how nature, in its unparalleled genius, has already solved many of the problems we face today. But the key lies in the emerging technology on the cusp of innovation right now. Evolve won’t stop with the mere idea of change. Using cutting-edge CGI, the series will explore a future where the technology is already applied, and each problem is solved.
