A new subscription Nature streaming service has launched in the UK, immersing viewers in the beauty and wonder of the natural world by telling compelling and unexpected stories of animals and landscapes. The goal is to inspire change by bringing audiences closer to Nature.
With one of the world’s largest libraries of 4K – or ‘ultra-high definition’ (UHD) – wildlife and Nature programmes, Love Nature has been described as a ‘treasure trove of Nature documentaries’.
There are hundreds of hours of stunning natural history shows to enjoy, with weekly updates of series, one-off documentary films and 4K slow TV Nature scenes. It’s all ad-free and family-friendly content – and there really is something for everyone.
ORIGINAL AND EXCLUSIVE
Programmes that feature on Love Nature are made by the world’s leading wildlife and Nature documentary makers, including Plimsoll Productions and Off the Fence Productions. Love Nature itself is the global leader in 4K wildlife and Nature production.
Exclusive shows include original 4K Nature series and documentaries such as the UK premiere and Love Nature exclusive Camp Zambia: The Big Dry by Plimsoll Productions and the UK premiere of seven-part 4K series Strange Creatures.
Other shows proving popular with viewers include Academy Award-nominated IMAX 4K film IMAX: Dolphins, narrated by Pierce Brosnan, and the beautiful and touching documentary Ocean Voyagers, narrated by Meryl Streep.
To support worldwide conservation efforts and help to raise awareness about environmental issues, Love Nature and WWF International have established a video partnership that sees both organisations working together to promote the protection of wildlife and animal habitats all over the world.
To mark the start of the partnership, Love Nature gave WWF International $20k to fund a training programme that supports the global effort to double the number of tigers in the wild by 2022. Thanks to the funding, 60 wildlife crime rangers in Cambodia’s Serepok Wildlife Sanctuary and Phnom Prich Wildlife Sanctuary have received extensive training in field craft, patrolling tactics, navigation, crime scene investigation, law, wildlife monitoring and enforcement.
