This interesting series highlights the different ways conservationists are going about protecting endangered species. Some of those featured run organizations that provide refuge for injured and traumatized animals in order to rehabilitate them so they can eventually go back out into the wild. It also looks at some of the anti-poaching tactics being used to protect at-risk animals, which include training dogs to track down and subdue active poachers and educating and involving local communities. There are some disturbing conversations and images of abused and destroyed animals, too. While the dangers that poachers pose to conservationists aren't discussed in great detail, the images of fatigue-wearing, armed enforcement officers make it clear. Nonetheless, The Red List offers an overwhelmingly positive look at the different efforts being made to protect wildlife, and the people responsible for them.
