  • Follow-up to the bestselling Water Life series hailed as "absolutely gorgeous"
  • Award-winning HD cinematography
  • Never before seen wildlife behavior from around the world

This breathtaking series aims at discovering why two very different regions of the planet, very far away from each other, are so rich in biodiversity; two unique places on Earth that serve as natural bridges between continents. Central America is a strip of land connecting two large land masses, a small region with an extraordinary natural richness. The Iberian Peninsula is the most biodiverse region in Europe, acting as an umbilical cord between Africa and Europe. Both places are defined as "biological bridges."

Through groundbreaking cinematography, discover the Earth's hidden secrets like never before, and see how all life is connected in miraculous and stunning ways!

DVD 1: The Ocean’s Border - When the Isthmus of Panama closed four million years ago, the two largest oceans of the planet were separated and massive geological events created a unique place that would grow some of the most fascinating life on Earth.  Intense volcanic activity created what is now known as Central America, and it began to be colonized by amazing creatures that gradually colonized every new island.  Discover five incredibly diverse regions within this ecosystem: the wetlands of the Caribbean, the Southern Caribbean, the North Pacific, the Corcovado Peninsula, and the central mountain range.

 

DVD 2: Looking South - Central America is home to some of the most breathtaking animals in the world.  In vast and dramatic forests, several dynamic species of animal cohabitate—from the fierce jaguar to the clever monkey.  Let these ambassadors of the wild show you the splendors of their homes!

 

DVD 3: Quetzals’ Land - This is a long, mountainous passage where hundreds of thousands of species of plants and animals live.  The umbilical cord that linked the continents also created one of the richest and most diverse places on earth—the Caribbean rainforests.  These exotic destinations are the home to the magnificent and lonely Quetzal birds.  Explore the Pacific coast of Central America and take flight with these rollicking spectacles of nature.

 

DVD 4: The Rarest Piece of the PuzzleThe Iberian Peninsula used to be a small continent floating on a plate between African and Europe. The alpine orogeny caused the peninsula to collide with the southern European continent, giving it shape and almost closing the Mediterranean Sea. As a result, both continents became closer and numerous mountain chains, such as the Pyrenees, the Central System, and the “Picos de Europa,” were formed. The peninsula became a bridge full of distinctive features and ecosystems that facilitated the existence of diverse and unique landscapes. On the one hand, the mountainous North became filled with wet and cold Euro-Siberian forests. On the other hand, the South became a warm region where several species found shelter during the Ice Age. 

 

DVD 5: Iberian Europe - From the placid wood grouse, to large herbivores like the chamois and the Spanish ibex, to dynamic predators like bears and wolves, this program chronicles life in the animal worlds of this lush and varied region.  Learn how two opposing worlds were joined in a single territory that remained isolated by the Pyrenees Mountains.  The results are a collection of forgotten places, exciting animals, and unique splendors.

 

DVD 6: Mediterranean Iberia - The flow of species from Mediterranean Iberia and Africa creates a rich variety of fauna that leaves the land and landscape deeply transformed.  During the summer, eagles, vultures, storks and Passeriformes fly from Africa to Europe.  Some species make it to the peninsula without crossing the barrier of the Pyrenees, but other African travelers conquer the continent little by little: from the black-winged kite, to the genet, to the Egyptian mongoose, to the chameleon.  This program takes a close look at this visiting population.
