The songs and sounds of birds are all around us. What can we learn when we stop to listen?
Threatened will transport you to some of the most beautiful and remote places in North America — where birds are calling humans to take action. These stories about the enduring connections between birds, people, and landscapes are for the bird-curious, conservation-conscious, and travel-starved.
Join host and senior science reporter Ari Daniel for an escape to the natural world — and a glimpse into the lives of the people working to protect it.
