This one is firmly in the ‘you can’t make this stuff up’ category, which makes docs so much fun. Asking nobody’s permission, Russian geophysicist Sergey Zimov and his son Nikita are gathering any large wooly beast they can find and transporting them, by whatever low budget means necessary, to the most remote corner of Siberia. The goal: restore the Ice Age “mammoth steppe” ecosystem, avoiding a catastrophic feedback loop. Whether or not they can alter the course of global destruction will of course be answered with time, but they proffer a fascinating vision.
