Evolve is an exciting new series by documentary filmmaker and wildlife tv presenter, Patrick Aryee. The self-described thrill-seeker takes viewers on a globetrotting hunt around the world to discover the genius of planet Earth and how the understanding of other species and how they’ve evolved can save us as well.
I had an opportunity to sit down with Patrick as he discusses his love of biomimicry and beginning his career with Sir. David Attenborough as a researcher. It was an absolute blast. Patrick also gives a glimpse of what you’ll see on the show, to include chasing down a bull shark, hunting deathstalker scorpions and flying jets, all in service of showing how we still have a lot to learn from mother nature. The show was filmed on four continents and while it’s a wild ride, it’s uniquely informative.
Hopefully listening to Patrick explore how humanity can solve many of the fundamental issues facing us today by “mimicking” the incredible innovations found in nature will be as entertaining for you as it was for me.
“We live in a laboratory where nature is constantly evolving — from stunning animal superstars to mundane, unsuspecting heroes of the wild. From awe to wonder, it all has something to teach us,” said Patrick Aryee. “I genuinely believe that our future survival as a species lies in understanding and appreciating the inner workings of our natural world. It’s been the opportunity of a lifetime to work with some of humanity’s greatest minds in order to truly learn from mother nature. The journey might not be seamless, but evolution rarely is.
With Evolve, Patrick Aryee sets out to bring humanity’s future into focus by exploring nature, ecology, science and tech like never before. The epic six-part docuseries debuted January 27, 2022 on Curiosity Stream. All episodes are available now.
