Journey to three of the most exotic, mysterious and remote islands on Earth: Madagascar, Borneo and Hawaii. These isolated and iconic tropical islands harbor remarkable wildlife and human castaways found nowhere else on Earth. In a rapidly changing world, these fragile islands are a vital gauge for the health of our planet.
Madagascar: Journey across ancient Madagascar, the strangest and oldest island on Earth, famed for its lemurs. Over millennia it has given rise to more unique wildlife than any other island.
Borneo: A journey from Borneo’s rich coral reefs, through lush jungles to its mountainous heart, reveals it is no paradise, and the struggles to survive are the secret to a greater variety of life than found on than almost any other island, from orangutans to sun bears and flying snakes.
Hawaii: Hawaii, the most remote island chain in the world, is a wondrous archipelago that has offered sanctuary for that life that have reached its tropical shores. From humpback whales to waterfall-climbing fish, carnivorous caterpillars and albatross, it’s home to an extraordinary wealth of wildlife.
