"VIETNAM (EDD101)"

12/05/2020 (10:00AM - 10:30AM) (Saturday) : Host Dylan Dreyer takes us on an excursion to the lush tropical landscape of Vietnam. We will travel into the lowlands to find yellow-cheeked gibbons. These monkeys are famous for the loud, odd-sounding melodies they use to mark their territories. She also meets one of the rarest species of primates once thought to be extinct, the Hatinh langur. We will learn about their strange social structure, eating habits and how they have made an unlikely home in the limestone caves in the cliffs of Halong Bay. Finally, Dylan travels to the Son Tra primary forest, home to the red-shanked douc.

12/05/2020 (10:30AM - 11:00AM) (Saturday) : Host Dylan Dreyer takes us on an adventure to the mysterious Hebrides archipelago off the northern coast of Scotland. Isolated from the mainland, this island chain has become the perfect breeding ground for millions of creatures, earning it the name "Europe's Last Wilderness." We travel to the Outer Hebrides chain that hosts one of the largest gatherings of grey seals on the planet, then we head inland to see one of the largest deer in the world, the red deer. We'll watch as these sturdy bucks fight aggressively with their mighty antlers to win mating rights for the island's female population. Finally, we explore one of the region's most mysterious animals: ancient man. We'll explore his ancient stone dwellings carved into the landscape and see towering stone monuments whose mystical origins still baffle experts today.

12/05/2020 (11:00AM - 11:30AM) (Saturday) : Host Daisy Fuentes pays a visit to Sylvia, who has just become a grandmother for the first time. She wants to be able to share family stories with her new grandson, Saint, but first there are some things she'd like to learn. She knows her mother is Polynesian, but what else is she?

"GALAPAGOS (EDD103)"

12/12/2020 (10:00AM - 10:30AM) (Saturday) : Host Dylan Dreyer takes us to the Galapagos Islands, a volcanic hotspot off the coast of South America. The 19th century botanist Charles Darwin used the Galapagos as his own laboratory. We follow Darwin's trail to see how he studied the evolution of animals and plants on these islands. In our journey, we will see how each species finds a way to survive despite the unforgiving conditions of these volcanic islands. We get an insider look at the volatile world of Fernandina, Galapagos' youngest island. With such a hostile land environment, we meet the only lizard in the world that's learned to fish for its dinner. Then, we'll hop over to older islands with less volcanic activity, where the stable environment is creating an opportunity for a more diverse and abundant wildlife scene.

12/12/2020 (10:30AM - 11:00AM) (Saturday) : Host Dylan Dreyer takes us on an exploration of the hidden oasis of Yunnan in southwest China. This remarkable region consists of lush valleys, tropical forests and some of the most rugged mountain peaks on Earth. We begin our journey in the lowland forests of Yunnan, home to one of the biggest monkeys in Asia, the Chinese stump-tailed macaque. We'll then make a trek up to the top of the Hengduan Mountains to meet a mysterious group of primates that inspired the legend of the Abominable Snowman. Finally, we will meet a group of fishermen who, for a thousand years, have trained and used the hunting skills of Cormorant birds to help them fish the mighty rivers of Yunnan.

"CARIBBEAN (EDD105)"

12/19/2020 (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)"

12/19/2020 (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.
