|Hidden Rivers of Southern Appalachia: Southern Appalachia is a little-known hotspot for aquatic life and is home to some wildly diverse fish, mussels, salamanders, crayfish and other critters. Hidden Rivers takes an immersive look at the little-known creatures of these waters, their striking beauty and extreme vulnerability. The film reminds us all that biodiversity is everywhere and rivers are always deeper than you think!|

|Field Spotlight: Monique Pool, founder of the Green Heritage Fund Suriname, finds herself "slothified" after an area of forest in Suriname is cut down. Monique rescues more than 200 animals, mostly sloths, and brings them to an emergency shelter, which also happens to be her home.|
