Earth: A New Wild Home

In Bangladesh, every week on average, someone is killed by a tiger. Sanjayan surveys tiger territory with scientists who are trying to find out why these tigers are more aggressive than elsewhere. But in the strangest twist, Sanjayan also discovers that fear of tigers is actually protecting the mangrove forests which provide much of the country with protection from storms and cyclones. Man-eating tigers are protecting a nation of millions.
