The South Pacific is still relatively healthy and teeming with fish, but continues to be a fragile paradise. Like all of our oceans, it has little or no protection while also being home to the planet's richest coral reefs and most iconic ocean wildlife.

Witness the birth, growth, and death of an island in the greatest ocean on Earth. Millions of years are condensed into one hour, revealing unforgettable images of an erupting underwater volcano and rivers of lava exploding below the waves.
