Lake Baikal - Source of Life

Lake Baikal - Source of Life

The world's biggest freshwater lake in distant Siberia is remarkable. Its winter ice is so thick that it can support a train! Its 100,000 Nerpa seals are one of only three species worldwide that have adapted to live in fresh water, thousands of kilometers from the ocean. Their large eyes evolved so they can hunt by sight in the clear waters. The seals give birth on ice fl oes, watching out for sea eagles swooping down on their young. Bears arrive in the springtime - to catch the protein-rich caddis-fl ies! Songbirds summer here amongst glowing red and violet rhododendron bushes. In the Taiga forests, tiny musk-deer are now safe from human hunters but their fawns can still fall prey to the bears, wolves, lynx and wolverines, that all have their own young to feed. Enormous colonies of bitterns, ducks and loons gather at the Angara Delta to raise their young; while rare black storks look on, from high in the branches of the forests' tallest trees.
