Description:

Amazon.com Breathtaking IMAX photography, fascinating animals, and knowledgeable commentary make Survival Island powerful and informative. The sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia, also known as "Survival Island," is the only island suitable for breeding for thousands of miles in the Southern Ocean. Each spring, animals as disparate as the elephant and fur seals, king and macaroni penguins, albatross, and giant petrels visit the island to reproduce. Narrator David Attenborough details the cycle of life on the island by studying each species individually, then adopting a wider perspective that studies how such a fascinating array of life can coexist and thrive in such a cold, forbidding place. Humans' historical role as hunters on the island is briefly mentioned, as is our current role as statistical gatherer. A short behind-the-scenes featurette with producer Christopher Parsons and director David Douglas emphasizes the resilience of nature and gives a sense of the inspiration crew members experienced while filming on the island. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi Product Description Standing almost alone in the great Southern Ocean, South Georgia island plays host to some of the largest concentrations of animals anywhere on Earth during the spring and summer months. This is the story of these vast animal cities, and of the order that lies beneath their seeming chaos.DVD Features:Interactive MenusOther:Soundtrack re-mastered in Dolby Digital 5.1 See all Editorial Reviews
