DESCRIPTION

With unprecedented access to covert operations, this landmark series follows special investigators from the Environmental Investigation Agency, EIA, as they slip into the murky underworld of environmental crime.  The undercover agents risk their lives as they delve into the dark side of the multi million dollar timber industry in Southeast Asia, the resurgent shadowy dealings of ivory trade between Africa and China, and the controversial continuing slaughter of whales and dolphins in Iceland and Japan. 

For over 25 years EIA has pioneered the use of undercover investigation techniques within the environmental movement.  Assuming false identities, their dedicated agents meet face to face with these criminals and with hidden cameras they capture priceless video evidence of the contraband, people, and organised criminal networks involved.

With low risk of punishment and massive profit margins, environmental contraband is now rivaling the drugs and arms smuggling trade.  The challenges now are greater than ever.

EPISODE GUIDE

  • Crimes Against Nature 2: Blood Ivory
    The EIA team head to Kenya, Hong Kong and China to investigate the world of elephant poaching and the international ivory trade. Following claims of an upsurge in poaching and ivory smuggling, EIA want to find out the real situation for themselves. Visiting Kenya's national parks, they face up to the horrific reality of elephant poaching, as well as heading to China where their undercover investigations reveal previously unheard of revelations about how the ivory smuggling underworld works. EIA are determined to uncover the truth.
  • Crimes Against Nature 2: Chainsaw Massacre
    EIA's undercover agents gear up and head to Laos and Vietnam for a new investigation into the notoriously dangerous timber trade. Vietnam is fast becoming a major global player in the timber industry but with little forest left of its own, Vietnam is largely dependent on importing timber from other countries. EIA suspect that a lot of this timber is being taken illegally from Southeast Asia's rapidly declining tropical rainforests and they will stop at nothing to expose this devastating environmental crime that has the potential to affect us all.
  • Crimes Against Nature 2: Making A Killing
    Only a handful of countries continue to practice industrial whaling. Iceland is one of them, pursuing endangered fin whales in order to turn a profit. But rumors have persisted that there is a lack of demand for this whale meat in both Iceland and Japan, its main export market. With this in mind, investigators from the EIA once again grab their undercover cameras and attempt to locate and understand the driving force behind this trade.
