&Beyond’s mantra “Care of the Land, Care of the Wildlife, Care of the People” is at the very heart of our Protect our Planet series. Shaped into four, conservation-centred sub-series, this collection connects viewers with our on-the-ground teams, our conservation and community collaboration and ongoing research work in the field.

Rhino Calf Rescue
The current plight of rhinos is well known. Each and every one is a precious resource. So what happens when a rhino calf is in trouble? Watch the &Beyond Phinda Conservation Team respond – a rare window on the inspiring world of conservation in action.
Birds have that enviable quality of being able to fly wherever they like but their airborne lifestyle makes it very hard for us to understand them well and the factors that affect their wellbeing. If we don’t know how long a species lives for, where it flies to overwinter or what habitat it prefers to use and when, how do we conserve birds and the natural areas they need to survive? Thank goodness for dedicated bird ringers like James Rawdon and Lara Mansfield. With the data they collect, we are gradually gaining better insight into the wonderful world of birds.
