Galapagos: Nature’s Wonderland in 3D
Travel to a paradise unlike any other: the Galapagos archipelago. Among these fascinating and remote volcanic islands, life has played out over millions of years in relative isolation, resulting in a remarkable collection of plants and animals that have all adapted to this unique environment. In this 3D movie, meet giant half-ton tortoises and marine iguanas that spit sea-salt from their noses. Dance with tropical albatrosses and hunt fishes with the colorful blue-footed boobies. Dive into the ocean with flightless cormorants and swim with tiny penguins thousands of miles away from their natural habitats. Around the archipelago, converging crosswinds and deep, cold, nutrient-rich currents have made possible a unique and bio-diverse marine oasis, which boasts everything from abundant microscopic plankton to Galapagos sharks. Narrated by Jeff Corwin. 20 minutes.
