This season, Nature’s tour-de-force was American Spring LIVE, a three-night live broadcast event spotlighting one of nature’s greatest performances – spring, a time of rebirth, renewed energy and dramatic transformations.

Nature’s Season 37 premiere kicked off with the three-part series Super Cats, profiling the secret lives of 31 species of cats in 14 countries. A video of the “World’s Deadliest Cat” on YouTube performed exceedingly well with 2.1 million views. Nature also invited fans for a Facebook Live Q&A with Luke Hunter, Chief Conservation Officer at Panthera and an advisor for the series.
