Metamorphosen - Die Wildnis kehrt zurück: USA - Neues Leben am Eriesee

Agriculture, urban development and industry have taken a toll on Lake Erie, one of the five Great Lakes on the northern edge of the United States. Today, more and more people are working to bring back nature around the lake. Rivers are recovering, wetlands are emerging, and extirpated species of animals and plants are returning. The wounds that man inflicted on nature are beginning to heal.

This film will be shown only online as part of "one film - one day".
