The new and exciting PBS series Nature’s Great Race airs its Season 1 finale tonight, with an episode featuring zebras. The show debuted on July 12 as part of PBS’s Summer of Adventure programming. The show takes viewers from Africa to the Arctic and follows the treacherous journeys wild animals including elephants, caribou, and zebras make annually for survival. The series uses real-time footage and tracks the animals long-distance migrations. Check local listings for tonight’s episode. Those who missed the series may watch the show online and on-demand at the PBS website.
The series has been well received on social media networks, and those who enjoy watching animal documentaries should find the footage breathtaking. Please be warned that this is a stunning documentary that shows animal life in the wild. Not only will viewers be taken on a journey through wild terrain, but will see animals fighting for their survival. That means that animal fights, predatory attacks, and hunting for prey will be included. Local PBS stations have promoted tonight’s episode in addition to the first two episodes that previously aired.
As each local PBS station determines their broadcasting schedule, it is important to check with your own network for air times.
