"Some of Earth’s greatest dramas don’t take place in fantasy worlds or on stages. They happen in the wild. They happen on frozen arctic tundra’s, deep under water in vast seas, on savannah plains, in forests and on steep mountain faces. These are the epic stories of Mother Nature, and her actors are bent on survival."
