E24 | Earth from above | Nature’s Heroes: Bangladesh - Part 2

With Bangladesh as a running thread, Yann Arthus-Bertrand meets several people who have changed their lives to dedicate themselves to a major project. In Bangladesh, Yves and Runa Marre have created the Friendship Foundation. Among other things, they’ve created a floating hospital installed on an old barge bought in France. Julie Andersen, an ex-advertising executive from New York, has come to South Africa to defend sharks with her Shark Angels Foundation. In North India, Kartik Satyanarayan is helping to stop the dreadful exploitation of the lippus bears (dancing bears). He’s created Wildlife SOS, a preserve to rehabilitate the bears that have been rescued and to give work to the men of the tribe who were traditionally bear tamers and entertainers.
