Wild Caribbean - Rhythms of Life
Part I: Hunters of the Caribbean
Part II: Whales and Volcanoes
Part III: Corals and Clouds
Hunters of the Caribbean: Spectacular action in Paradise. From the opening sequence of a sea turtle
snared by a tiger shark it's clear no animal, Hunter or Hunted, above or below the water - can make
it through life without a strategy for survival.
Whales and Volcanoes: when volcanoes burst from the ocean, they attract unique life forms to their
jungle valleys and black sandy beaches - and create deep sea chasms that pods of sperm whales enjoy
so much, they never leave.
Corals and Clouds: These Caribbean coasts and islands,made out of once-living creatures, are now a
labyrinth of life. Every year in a stunning synchronised display of coral spawning, the «flower animals»
re-colonise the reefs. Inland, Caribbean cloud forests with their Quetzals are just as magical, but
their suffocating run-off of sediment from logging is the corals' biggest challenge.
