Planet In Peril - Yellowstone

This week Anderson and his team are in Yellowstone National Park for the "Planet In Peril" Series~

While Anderson didn't anchor AC360 from Yellowstone, he was on the rooftop in LA anchoring later that week and aired reports on his "adventure"

COOPER: I was in Yellowstone Park last weekend. It wasn't exactly a sight-seeing tour. I was there for our "Planet in Peril" series. And while it's taken us all over the world this year, this time, we decided to bring the story back here to America.

The reason are the grey wolves. They're an endangered species. They were nearly driven to extinction in America. But at Yellowstone, something remarkable is happening. I was lucky enough to witness it. Take a look.

COOPER: Earlier this week, I was pretty far away from the city life you see behind me. I was out in the woods on the hunt for a killer at Yellowstone National Park, on the lookout for gray wolves as part of our "Planet in Peril" series.

Now the wolves were once near extinction. They're now back at the park and thriving. And while they're killing other animals, they're also bringing new life to the ecosystem. Take a look.


And back in the NYC studio, AC360 aired the following promotion on September 27, 2007

COOPER: Remarkable -- gray wolves at Yellowstone National Park, just one of the stops in a project that's literally taken us around the world.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Animal Planet's Jeff Corwin, a team of CNN producers and I have been working for months on a four-hour documentary we're calling "Planet in Peril." It looks at four major threats to the planet and how they're all connected.

One of the topics is species loss. And some studies say that the rate of extinction is now 1,000 times the natural rate. It's hard to measure, so we went to Yellowstone to look at it in reverse through species reintroduction.


Please join us next week when we find Anderson in Greenland...
