Abstract:

In May 1995, filmmakers David Parer and Elizabeth Parer-Cook arrived with their 3-year-old daughter, Zoe, on the Galápagos Islands to document the islands' natural beauty for television. During their two-year stay, they spent 500 days in the field - 200 of which were spent at sea, diving with whale sharks and hammerheads and exploring the islands of the archipelago. This is the charming and dramatic tale of how the family lived in this harsh environment and succeeded in capturing spectacular images of the Galápagos Islands and its wildlife.
