Never before has there been such an insightful and timely wildlife series.
By strict definition predators are animals that eat other animals, but the role that they play in nature goes far beyond that. They expertly control the quantity and quality of animal populations below them in the food chain. But life at the top of the food chain is not easy. Predators must rely on their hunting skills for day to day survival. Unfortunately, this killing instinct and the brutality of the hunt has caused predators to be grossly misunderstood and unjustly persecuted. Today we’re finally able to see nature’s hunters in a different light. Now we realize that a healthy ecosystem requires a healthy balance of predators, and understanding them is essential to understanding nature itself.
