Each day as we head to work, another day in the office or wherever our business takes us, few if ever give a single thought to the billions of Wild Workers who day after day toil to keep our planet in shape. Yet without the vast herds who graze the open grasslands, the countless armies of ants and termites, the unseen and silent diggers that help to keep the soils fertile, our world would be a different place. The wild workers are at work in the oceans, as well as the forests and plains – in fact everywhere. Some are at work to build the foundations that help to maintain the rhythms of life. Others craft carefully built and planned homes. While others are engineers who shape their worlds, and ours.
In three gripping episodes, Wild Workers tells the stories of how our world is shaped and organized, often without our knowledge.
