"EARTH ODYSSEY WITH DYLAN DREYER"

"CARIBBEAN (EDD105)"

10/17/2020 (10:00AM - 10:30AM) (Saturday) : The Caribbean is a string of more than 7,000 islands between North America and South America. There are plenty of white sandy beaches and crystal blue waters, but did you know there's a wild side to this beachgoer's paradise? We take a trip to the hidden parts of the Caribbean Islands, where giant sea turtles lay their eggs, ancient volcanoes turn into bat caves and sunken ships get a second life as manmade reefs for coral and marine life. We watch as violent storms reach hurricane strength, sending waves crashing down on delicate underwater ecosystems. Find out where the animals hide when they are caught up in the storms and what they will do to rebuild once the weather passes. We discover thermal boiling lakes on the island of Dominica, where volcanoes simmer just below the surface. We find out how the national birds on the island of Trinidad get their deep scarlet color. See where these birds roost as the sun sets over the island. We catch up with the hummingbirds, some of the smallest and speediest inhabitants of the Caribbean. Just a couple of inches tall, hummingbirds are constantly on the move. Find out what fuels their diet and how much they must eat to keep those wings airborne.

"TURKEY (EDD106)"

10/17/2020 (10:30AM - 11:00AM) (Saturday) : We travel to Turkey, wedged between Europe and the Middle East. Discover why Turkey is a country of extreme temperatures and landscapes. We go rock climbing with Turkey's Anatolian wild goats as they trek along thousand-foot cliffs. In Turkey, conditions deteriorate with heavy downpours, blinding snowstorms and even burning heat. Find out how this country's largest land mammal, the brown bear, copes with such a hostile environment. We visit the country's alpine meadows where swarms of honey bees store up on nectar and water before heading back to their hives for the winter. We soar above the rock formations known as fairy chimneys created by ancient volcanoes and then head inland to Lake Yay. That's where we will find some of the most colorful birds in the world, including the bright pink greater flamingos. Watch as these long-limbed birds fish for shrimp in salty waters. With the moon as our guide, we follow along with seafaring leatherback turtles as they make their way to Turkey's wild coast. The sandy beaches are a popular nesting spot for the turtles, but there are plenty of predators like ghost crabs lurking nearby. As the baby loggerhead turtles finally hatch, it's a race back to open ocean waters before the crabs can catch up.
