The world’s freshwater monsters are vanishing – and for biologist Jeremy Wade, that’s a wake-up call: a sign that our rivers are in trouble. Polluted, controlled, and over-exploited, even the mightiest are said to be dying. But are things really that simple?
In Mighty Rivers, Jeremy takes the pulse of six of the planet’s biggest waterways. With the immersive style that’s made him a global TV star, Jeremy investigates the Amazon, the Ganges, the Yangtze, the Mississippi, the Danube, and the Zambezi. Are these huge rivers sick beyond the point of hope? Or have reports of their death been greatly exaggerated?
