Intimate, magic encounters with rare species

An intimate tale about our love of the natural world, ARC invites young people to get up close and personal with snow leopards, hammerhead sharks, microbats, elephants, and more, supporting young voices to speak up on matters that affect their world. Explore the natural world of our feathered, furry, and smooth-skinned friends that co-habit our beautiful planet.

Feel inspired to embrace caring for and nurturing our incredible wildlife on our shared planet earth. This latest world premiere by Erth presents intimate, magical encounters with rare and vulnerable species, raising important questions about our relationship with the changing natural world.
