As the population has grown, we’ve urbanised the world around us, changing the way animals live. In the final episode of Planet Earth II, David Attenborough focuses on cities and the kind of animals you can find close to home.
Grasslands cover much of the earth and provide a home to many species of animals. From towering elephants to tiny field mice, the grass supports a range of life. In this week’s Planet Earth II, David Attenborough shows us what it takes to survive in these unique environments.
Survival is the most important thing in the animal world, and that is made clear in the latest episode of Planet Earth II. The documentary focused on deserts and why they are extreme environments to live in. The episode kicked off with a tense confrontation between desert lions and a giraffe.
Half way through the series, and Planet Earth II continues to impress with amazing visuals and unforgettable sights. This week, David Attenborough took viewers into the jungle to see how animals fight to survive. The opening shot revealed an Indri leaping through the tree tops of Madagascar. Indri are the largest lemurs on the planet, and listening to the mournful song of the female was a great way to set the tone for the program.
Last week, David Attenborough introduced us to some of the remotest habitats on the planet with the first episode of Planet Earth II. This week his focus is on mountains, where only the hardiest of animals can survive. The program opened with stunning snow-capped vistas and the appearance of a snow leopard.
Ten years ago, Planet Earth captivated the world by setting a new standard for wildlife documentaries. In 2016, Sir David Attenborough returned with Planet Earth II, proving once again why he is one of history’s greatest naturalists. The first episode aired last night and followed the theme of ‘Islands’ with cameras focusing on some of the remotest places in the world.
