Wild Burma

Burma is one of Southeast Asia's largest and least-explored countries, home to vast swathes of rare forests rumored to house some of the world's most exotic wildlife. But the nation has recently embraced democracy and development, and its wilderness is in peril. Join the team of scientists and filmmakers given unprecedented access to this territory that's remained closed off from the world for 50 years. Their mission: to prove to the Burmese government that endangered animals are living here, and are in desperate need of protection.
