Britain's Big Wildlife Revival is hosted by ecologist and Countryfile presenter Ellie Harrison, and each week three guest presenters will champion a wild creature they want to bring back from the brink. The six-part series, on BBC One from late summer, is part of BBC Learning’s Summer Of Wildlife - a special season of programming and showcase events that will celebrate the UK’s unique and extraordinary wildlife.
The presenters trying to turn this decline around include Ben Fogle championing the near-extinct hedgehog, Bill Oddie highlighting the plight of the puffin, Philippa Forrester on how to save the kingfisher and Miranda Krestovnikoff championing white-clawed crayfish and the bottlenose dolphin.
Each episode will focus on a key habitat – rivers, woodland, farmland, coastal, urban and wetland – and the creatures that live there. They will include three short films, each fronted by an expert wildlife presenter who showcases the species that need our help. They explore how they are under threat, what is at stake if they disappear and what we can do to help save them.
