National Geographic documentary ‘Wild Edens: Russia’ to highlight effects of climate change

Documentary to air on Friday night, Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon.

Kenyan audiences have the opportunity to understand the effects of global warming on the Russian environment through National Geographic documentary ‘Wild Edens: Russia’ set to air in Africa from Friday 20th July through to Sunday 22nd July.

The film, which is the first in a series courtesy of Russian state nuclear agency Rosatom, will take viewers on an unforgettable journey across Russia’s most remote and unexplored regions, including Kamchatka, Altai and the Arctic. Their rugged, yet fragile ecosystems are under threat from the crippling effects of climate change.

The project’s main goal is to attract the attention of the international community to climate change and the need for a global transition to clean energy.

Friday’s broadcast will air in East Africa at 10pm, 3.50am on Saturday morning and 5pm on Sunday afternoon.

Wild Edens: Russia was filmed across pristine locations, where the ecosystems are especially vulnerable to the effects of global warming.

Over several months, the film crew carried its kit to the most remote corners of a territory stretching 10 000 kilometers from east to west and forming the biggest country on our planet.

Viewers can tune in to see Kamchatka bears hunting for salmon, walruses coasting on the Arctic shoreline, musk oxen coping with punishing weather conditions, and many more representatives of rare and diverse flora and fauna in their unique natural habitats.
