Photo Gallery: Planet in Peril – Battle Lines

Anderson Cooper, Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Animal Planet's Jeff Corwin traveled to some of the most remote and remarkable places on Earth and gathered evidence on the unsettling changes taking place all around us.

    I really believe that these pictures are beyond incredible. In this crazy, fast-paced life, people forget about what does not affect them directly day to day. To see pictures of places or animals that we have never seen or visited is truly awe inspiring.
