Human Footprint “Top Predator”

Wednesday, July 12 at 8 p.m.

This new six-part documentary series, hosted by biologist and Princeton University professor Shane Campbell Staton, embarks on a journey to understand all the ways humans have impacted the planet. Part science series and part travel show, “Human Footprint” takes viewers from farms to restaurants, from a high-tech lab to a sweltering street market, from pristine rainforests to the sewers of New York City. The series is not a “doom and gloom” tale of human villainy. Instead, it is an honest reckoning with our vast footprint and our species’ singular history of transforming the planet.  

Top Predator

There is a killer inside us. Our biology, culture, technology and economy have transformed our species into the world’s greatest predator. From Yellowstone to Mozambique, explore our global impact as the planet’s top predator.
