In some regions intensively used by man, new habitats are being created – full of amazing beauty and diversity. From the producers of “Paradise Preserved”, “Water is Our Future” and “Islands of the Future” comes a new series that takes us to regions that have undergone – and are still undergoing – radical change.

On the Great Lakes in North America, in the rainforest of Costa Rica and in the Lausitz region of eastern Germany highly polluted rivers, vast areas given over to monocultures and soaring slag heaps are being transformed into species-rich marvels of nature. Biologists are creating wetlands out of brownfield sites, conservationists are turning cattle pastures into tropical forest and districts devastated by lignite mining are producing refuges for rare species.

The individual, self-contained episodes document a range of compelling projects, which demonstrate that even destruction can provide a new beginning for nature. And that we can all help to save the biodiversity of our planet for the future.

With lavishly filmed sequences and emotional storylines, the documentary series “Metamorphoses – The Return of the Wilderness” makes a powerful appeal to the mind, the heart and the eye.
