Light at the Edge of the World

A journey to the ancient Inca’s sacred geography in the Andean peaks, wayfinders in Polynesia, a spiritual odyssey in the Himalayas of Nepal and vanishing ice’s impact on Inuit life in the Arctic are all explored by Canada’s only National Geographic explorer-in-residence Wade Davis in the four-part documentary series Light at The Edge of The World.

In an age of fierce debate over globalization, environmental protection and saving endangered species we have overlooked the most valuable imperilled resource we have: the diversity of our own kind. The culture of humanity is at risk.
