Viewing Wildlife Documentaries

My own experience of viewing wildlife documentaries in relation to Dan Brockenshire’s argument, “Demand for wildlife film is both a product of our alienation from nature, and one of the forces that produces and enhances that alienation,” is correlated to a degree, however, the argument somewhat ensues me to take action.  Let me explain:  I believe my viewing of wildlife documentaries is caused by my own alienation of particular fantastical regions (such as Antartica or Nepal), which therefore aids in the production of this visual genre, but I do not believe that wildlife documentaries force or enhance my alienation. The wildlife films encourage me to go out there and discover such places and animals myself, while maybe even producing my own version of a wildlife documentary.
