Description

From the penguins in Antarctica to tree frogs in Costa Rica, to E. coli bacteria in the human intestines, this program focuses on the incredible variety of life on our planet and explores the biological processes at work in communities and ecosystems throughout the globe. Students see exotic footage demonstrating how life has adapted to all kinds of ecosystems-from the desert to the rain forest and coral reefs. Viewers will appreciate why biodiversity is so important to their own well being, and will come to recognise how the rapid growth of the human population poses a variety of threats to other species. In addition, the program examines global efforts to protect biodiversity through habitat preservation, the protection of air and water quality, and as a last resort - captive breeding.
