TPWD tv shows Texas Parks and Wildlife Department

Above Texas: Rivers & Lakes
The first in a four part series that highlights The Lone Star State in a way we don’t normally get to see … from high above and down below. First up, we fly over our rivers and lakes, hearing from some of Texas’ greatest thinkers about how our stewardship of these resources are so vital to the economic and cultural future of our state.

Lone Star Land Steward: JA Ranch
Andrew Bivins is a fifth generation landowner of the massive, historic JA Ranch. He is among a new breed of ranch manager revolutionizing the use of GPS technology in the day-to-day operation of the JA Ranch’s land and cattle business.

Wild Things: Animal Coloration
From brightly colored feathers that make a bird stand out, to mottled camouflage to help an animal hide, different colors serve different purposes throughout the animal kingdom.

Climate of Changes
How will climate change affect the Texas Gulf Coast? Hear predictions on how the coast will be impacted over the next century. In part five of a six part series on the state of the gulf, scientists and biologists discuss how the documented rise in sea level is ongoing and what it will mean in the future for coastal communities in Texas. We will also look at the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s long documentation of warming water temperature and how some species like flounder have declined, while other species like the gray snapper have increased. We will also look at the spread of black mangroves and the newly detected red mangrove, as another indication of a warming climate.

Outdoor Info: Public Hunts
Each year the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department offers a variety of public hunts throughout the state. Here’s how to take advantage of these affordable opportunities.
