Latest Episode: Call of the Killer Whale, Pt. 2

Apr 22, 2009 Season 3 Episode 4 watch on (Paid)

This second of a two-part show explores the most complex marine species on the planet, our counterparts in the sea, the orca, the rulers of the ocean. They are the most widely distributed marine mammal in the world. Their realm extends from the Arctic to the Antarctic. Orcas, also called killer whales, number fewer than 100,000 worldwide, and learning more about them is a global endeavor for Cousteau and his team of explorers, who travel to both the northern and southern hemispheres as they seek out killer whales in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

Sea Ghosts

Apr 08, 2009 Season 3 Episode 3

There are places on this planet where it's a marvel that anything survives. In the cold Arctic waters of the far north, the sea is alive with sound. The canaries of the sea are singing. They're beluga whales, named from the Russian word for "white ones." They're an evolutionary surprise, a warm-blooded mammal in a numbingly cold sea. Resembling curious ghosts, these intelligent mammals use one of the most complex sonars of any animal. In this episode, Jean-Michel Cousteau travels with his team to the high Arctic to determine why some beluga groups are thriving and others are disappearing. There's a clear connection between human activity and the beluga's future. The beluga's world is now ground zero for climate change, what threatens them is not confined to the Arctic, it's global. What lies ahead for the beluga could become prophecy for many species everywhere, including our own.

Return to the Amazon, Pt. 2

Apr 09, 2008 Season 3 Episode 2

Part 2 of 2. Holding one-fifth of the world's river water, the Amazon travels through nine countries, with an outflow nearly 12 times larger than that of the Mississippi. There are more species of fish in the Amazon than in the entire Atlantic Ocean. Once a year, the river rises as high as 40 feet, forcing an intersection of wildlife - including piranhas, spiders the size of birds, pink dolphins, river otters, flocks of parrots and monkeys. Rainforests, where trees are being cut down at a staggering rate, are disappearing. Human enterprise and development not only compromise the health and ecology of these waters, but inflict global consequences.
