Abstract:

In the culmination of this 600-mile scientific expedition aboard the Alucia, Liz Bonnin and the team of scientific experts journey south to visit the oldest islands in the Galapágos to see first-hand the impact that humans have had on this pristine wilderness. Back on the larger island of Isabela, Liz descends into a spectacular vertical lava cave. Deep inside, she discovers how this hidden world could even provide an answer to how it might be possible to inhabit other planets. On her last land-based stop, on Santa Cruz, Liz comes face to face with the effects of man as she explores the misty scalesia forests. She also checks on a giant tortoise population, whose ancient migration pathways have come under threat from the largest human population on the archipelago. Finally, Liz dives into the deep blue waters to witness the birth of a brand-new island.
