Under One Sky

For hundreds of millions of years animals have inhabited the land, the seas and the skies of planet earth.

From the smallest insects to the largest mammals, animals are vital threads in the web of life that sustains us all. Animals have also been our close companions and workmates for thousands of years. They fascinate and inspire us, and are woven into the fabric of cultures around the world.

Under one sky explores the many ways that animals matter.
