Art Wolfe's Travels to the Edge Previous Broadcasts

Bolivia: The Altiplano (Episode #101)

KQED Life: Sat, Sep 29, 2012 -- 3:00 PM

Art journeys to one of the earth's most extreme environments-the high, rugged and remote Altiplano. More lunar than earthly in appearance, Bolivia's high plain is a land lost in time. The Altiplano's dazzling dreamscapes include the world's largest salt flat, an island of golden cactus, scarlet-tinted lakes, twin volcanoes and surreal skies.

Brazil: The Pantanal (Episode #205)

KQED Life: Sat, Sep 22, 2012 -- 3:00 PM

Located in the heart of South America, the Pantanal is the world's largest wetland and home to one of the densest concentrations of wildlife on the planet. It's a unique place where human activity and wildlife coexist. Here Brazilian cowboys ride herd alongside toothy caimans, giant otters, capybaras, macaws and toucans. In episode five, Art Wolfe arrives just as the seasonal floods have receded and discovers both an ecological paradise and a vibrant cowboy culture.

Peru: Manu (Episode #107)

KQED Life: Sat, Sep 15, 2012 -- 3:00 PM

It's a place where clouds conceal rare birds, animals blend into the forest, predators hide in the shadows and native peoples are disappearing. Manu, in southern Peru, belongs to the largest area of protected rain forest in the Amazon. Art goes downriver and encounters spectacular birds, animals and peoples of the Amazon, who together are struggling to survive.

Mexico: Baja (Episode #209)

KQED Life: Sat, Sep 8, 2012 -- 3:00 PM

Both an ocean oasis and isolated desert, the northern part of the narrow Baja peninsula is home to a surprising variety of plant and animal life. In episode nine, after a voyage on the Sea of Cortez in search of migrating gray whales, Art Wolfe ventures inland through the unforgiving Catavina desert and discovers a photographer's playground of light and magical landscapes.
