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.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
