The series took a deep look at heroic efforts to save or revive ecosystems around the world, preserving vital natural habitats in the face of climate change.

The minidocumentaries explore efforts to bring back coral reefs from the brink in Jamaica, restoration underway in the Florida Everglades, the fight to save an endangered butterfly that can be found only one place on Earth, the rebounding of the mountain gorilla in Rwanda and more.

“What Can Be Saved?” was supported by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Department of Science Education.
