Climate change creates violent weather patterns worldwide. The environmental impact of these changes puts undue stress on wildlife as their natural habitats flood or succumbs to drought. Wildlife preservationists must protect species from not only direct human contact, but also indirect contact through climate change caused by centuries of human consumption.

The preservation of natural wilderness and the life sustained within became a human concern centuries ago. Wildlife preservation in the United States began during in the 1800s with the Magna Carta, which gave the people the responsibility of preserving wilderness areas and the lives within. Groups formed to protect species hunted to near extinction and their efforts continue today but with less funding and growing global unrest, the future of wilderness preservation hangs in the balance.

"Leading Edge", with host Jimmy Johnson, looks at wilderness preservation in a world with changing climates and economic uncertainty. Learn the new challenges faced by preservationists around the globe as weather and man threaten to destroy wildlife and their homes. Find out the new sciences and strategies used to protect the worlds most beautiful and fragile places.
