The show has been shot as a means to promote awareness on animal conservation and environmental change.
“For me, this show presents a great opportunity to showcase to the world India’s rich environmental heritage and stress on the importance of environment conservation and living in harmony with nature. It was a great experience spending time in the jungle once again, this time with Bear, who is blessed with indefatigable energy and quest to experience nature at its purest,” he added.
India- where you find lush green forests, diverse wildlife, beautiful mountains and mighty rivers.
Watching this programme will make you want to visit different parts of India and add to discourse of environmental conservation.
