Wildlife

The term wildlife refers to living organisms that exist in natural habitats that are not in any way artificial or domesticated. Wildlife can refer to flora (plants) but more commonly refers to fauna (animals). Needless to say, wildlife is a very general term for life in various ecosystems. Deserts, rainforests, plains, and other areas—including the most built-up urban sites—all have distinct forms of wildlife.

Wildlife on television

Wildlife has long been a common subject for educational television shows. Since 1984, the Discovery Channel and its spinoff Animal Planet in the USA and the BBC natural history unit in the UK have dominated the market for shows about wildlife.
