Wildest Places: Pacific
A fascinating look at the grand and wild Pacific Ocean, which covers a third of the world’s surface and sustains primitive species that still survive.
S01:E01 - Coral Cities
The Pacific Ocean’s deep sea terrain is as varied as the land mirrored above. From hulking sea mounts to a monumental network of a barrier reefs so long it can be seen from space, the complex ecosystems of reefs are the lifeblood of the Pacific Ocean.
S01:E02 - Bays
Of the Pacific’s 25,000 islands, roughly two-thirds are in the Coral Triangle. The Triangle is a small western Pacific pocket from Indonesia, north of the Philippines and across to the Solomon Islands.
S01:E03 - The Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef, running along the coastline of northeastern Australia, is so big it can be seen from space. A chain of 3,000 individual reefs and some 900 islands, this system is bigger than the United Kingdom, Holland, and Switzerland combined.
S01:E04 - Islands
The Pacific Ocean spans 9,500 miles of latitude across vastly varying temperatures and topography. With such far-reaching boundaries, it’s little wonder that the 25,000 islands within the Pacific Ocean are so vastly different.
