    Quite possibly the most magnificent, thrilling, and achingly beautiful film I have ever seen about our animals and their beauty, intelligence, and caring. How can I purchase a VHS or a DVD of it?

    Wisdom of the Wild should be seen by EVERYONE, especially school children. I see that it can be purchased under the ’shop’ tab from the homepage.
