Wildest Islands of Indonesia: Series 1
The Wildest Islands of Indonesia showcases the beautiful Indonesian islands that remain a wild paradise of giant flowers and coral gardens, of dragons, tigers, giant apes and glorious birds of paradise. Fifteen percent of the entire world's species are found in this unique region. These islands not only harbour smaller animals, but also a unique species of elephant and a crab that measures almost a metre wide. This series explores the incredible wildlife of this extraordinary environment and reveals the remarkable ways in which life has been created, adapted and re-born over millions of years. These creatures have learnt to thrive and capitalise on some of the most powerful rainstorms on the planet, as well as uniquely adapt to the volcanic activity that constantly poses a threat to their existence.
