Galapagos: Nature’s Wonderland
Travel deep into the heart of the Pacific Ocean to a volcanic setting filled with stunning biological marvels – a universe of remarkable and unique creatures that learned to survive against all odds on this volcanic archipelago in constant evolution.
Located close to the equator in the Pacific Ocean, these remote volcanic islands have developed over millions of years in relative isolation. The result is a living museum of nature, with an abundance of curious plant and animal species that have adapted to thrive in this unique and challenging environment. Giant half-ton long-necked tortoises lumber among dancing blue-footed boobies and flightless cormorants. Penguins living thousands of miles from their natural habitats share the seas with unique marine iguanas that spit sea-salt. This is a story of discovery, of survival against the odds, and of nature's ingenuity.
"Galapagos: Nature's Wonderland" was filmed on location over a ten-month period, followed by five months of post-production. Using breakthrough lightweight digital 3D filmmaking technologies and featuring 4K ultra-high resolution imagery, the producers have brought the extraordinary world of the Galapagos to the giant screen in a way that has not been possible before. The Galapagos Islands are governed by Ecuador and lie some 600 miles from the coast of South America.
