Sportsman Channel Features Conservation Message with Marathon Programming on Saturday, January 26January 21, 2019
Featured Documentary “Circle of Life” Highlights Weekend of Programming
Focused on Conservation Education
DENVER (January 21, 2019) – Sportsman Channel will feature an hour-long sheep documentary funded by the Wild Sheep Foundation titled Circle of Life which will premiere on Saturday, January 26 at 7 p.m. on Sportsman Channel.
The feature documentary will be a part of Sportsman Channel’s My Saturday Marathon High Country Rams which also includes: Petersen’s Hunting Adventures, Jim Shockey’s Hunting Adventures and MeatEater. The one-hour documentary, Circle of Life focuses on the history of wild sheep conservation and the people and organizations who worked relentlessly to help restore healthy populations of wild sheep to North America.
Living in some of the toughest landscapes in the world, wild sheep are a magnificently breathtaking animal. Unfortunately, during the late 1800s and early 1900s wild sheep populations across North America fell drastically. In the 1970s, a group of concerned sheep conservationists came together to help restore the struggling populations. Through these efforts, sheep populations in North America have skyrocketed, with increases in herds up 2,000 percent in some areas.
The Circle of Life film is a celebration of wild sheep in North America and the incredible conservation efforts that helped restore their populations. The documentary also looks at what the future holds for this great animal. Can sheep herds continue to grow? Will wild sheep be able to coexist with humans and the ever-changing landscapes in this modern world?
Circle of Life takes viewers through the history of wild sheep conservation, as well as what it will take to maintain healthy and thriving populations in the future.
“The Circle of Life documentary is an excellent example of how hunters are the greatest conservationists in the world,” Outdoor Sportsman Group President and CEO, Jim Liberatore said. “This documentary helps explain how the ‘hunting for conservation’ issue really enables a species to not only survive but to prosper as a result.”
