Counting Sheep chronicles the struggle for survival of the wild Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep, a majestic emblem of American wilderness. Shot and produced over the course of twelve years, Counting Sheep captures the plight of the Sierra bighorn with dynamic interviews and exquisite footage –– the first film ever of one of the most endangered mammals of North America. At the heart of the film lies the tenacity of the biologists and environmentalists who fight to conserve these noble animals in the face of disease, harsh winters and predation by mountain lions. What is at stake is the future of a species.
