Deep in the Heart is a visually stunning celebration of what makes Texas unique — its diverse landscapes and remarkable wildlife behavior that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Told through the eyes of wildlife species ranging from the mysterious blind catfish to the elusive mountain lion, the story follows our ever-changing relationship with the natural world and showcases our ability to destroy, conserve, and recover wildlife and the habitat we mutually depend on.
Narrated by Matthew McConaughey and featuring state-of-the-art cinematography, this family-friendly film journeys from the highest peaks in West Texas, through our aquifers, rivers, and bays, and deep into the Gulf of Mexico. Deep in the Heart aims to conserve our remaining wild places, to show the connectivity of water and wildlife, and to recognize Texas’ conservation importance on a continental scale.
Founded in 2011 by former First Lady Laura Bush, Texan by Nature (TxN) unites landowners, business, conservation, and civic leaders who believe Texas' prosperity is dependent on the conservation of its natural resources. In Texas, our natural resources are finite, but our ingenuity is infinite.
At TxN, we harness that can-do spirit to take care of the land, water, and wildlife that sustain our state’s people, prosperity, and natural resources. We do this by activating new investments in Texan-led conservation, amplifying and accelerating innovations, and connecting partners to the resources they need to succeed. TxN achieves mission goals through the Texan by Nature Certification program, Conservation Wrangler program, Symposia series, and TxN 20.
