Produced by Thirteen/WNET New York, NATURE is now in its 26th season on PBS. Over a quarter-century, NATURE has traveled the globe working with the world’s foremost natural history filmmakers, becoming the benchmark of natural history programs on television. The series has won more than 400 honors from the television industry, the international wildlife film community, parent groups, and environmental organizations - including 10 Emmy Awards, two Peabody Awards, and the first honor ever given to a program by the Sierra Club.

NATURE Online is the award-winning Web companion to the broadcast series and is spearheading NATURE’s distribution to new media platforms. At NATURE Online, visitors can download behind-the-scenes video podcasts with filmmakers and producers (also available at iTunes), view program excerpts (also available on YouTube), and find fun interactive content, teacher lesson plans, and more. Online social networkers can join the NATURE group at Facebook and keep up with the latest videos, photos, program alerts and more.

Recognizing NATURE’s vast potential as a learning resource, Thirteen produces educational materials available free of charge to every elementary and middle school teacher in America. These include a Teacher’s Guide, classroom poster, DVD of select NATURE episodes, and take-home activities. A NATURE comic book for children ages 10 to 12, also free, is distributed through retail outlets, education centers and museums nationwide, including the American Museum of Natural History.

The executive producer of NATURE is Fred Kaufman; William Grant, director of science, natural history and features programming at Thirteen, is executive-in-charge. Major corporate support for NATURE is provided by Canon U.S.A., Inc. and Toyota. Additional support is provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the nation’s public television stations.

NATURE is broadcast closed-captioned for the hearing-impaired and distributed with Descriptive Video Service (DVS) for the sight-impaired.
