Biggest & Baddest Series Premiere on Nat Geo WILD #BiggestBaddest #NatGeoWild
On Friday, June 5, 2015 at 8/7c, Nat Geo WILD will get up close and personal with the world’s fiercest predators and most legendary animals with the newest series BIGGEST & BADDEST premiere.
Note: I'm part of Nat Geo WILD's "Bloggers Gone Wild" program and will share monthly information and news. However any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.
Cameras will follow renowned explorer and biologist Niall McCann on his mission to find the Biggest & Baddest animals around the globe for conservation research. Niall has made it his mission to track down animals that have come in conflict with humans around the world, sometimes placing both in danger. His conservation work sheds light on the dilemmas the animals face.
Climbing mountains, crossing jungle rivers, trekking across the outback and bushwhacking through dense wildernesses around the world, Niall courts adventure. And armed with his scientific knowledge and instincts, he does what others might be afraid to do — stare danger in the face without backing down.
“My passion is to track down formidable wildlife to learn more about their behavior and habitat,” said Niall. “To be able to do this every day and share it with audiences is a dream come true.”
As humans encroach on wildlife habitats, animals — including bats, tigers and pythons — are forced to live closer and closer to people, sometimes even terrorizing communities. Our cameras will wade through murky waters in the swamps of Venezuela to catch giant anacondas, follow fearsome predators like the royal Bengal tiger into the jungles of Nepal and wrestle with deadly saltwater crocodiles in Australia’s Northern Territory. These animals have reputations for killing humans, but Niall will disregard danger and get close enough to learn more about these animals.
Biggest & Baddest is produced by Gryphon Productions Ltd. for Nat Geo WILD. Executive producer for Gryphon Productions Ltd. is Peter von Puttkamer. For Nat Geo WILD, senior vice president of development and production is Janet Han Vissering, and executive vice president and general manager is Geoff Danie
