The team behind David Attenborough’s Great Barrier Reef explore the remarkable creatures of the Galápagos islands. These rocky and beautiful islands are remote and unforgiving, yet home to giant tortoises, equatorial penguins, pink iguanas, and dandelion trees. Mission Galápagos uses a state-of-the-art research vessel – with floating labs, helicopters, and sonar scanners – to capture rare animals and submerged worlds. Expert presenters abseil into volcanoes and free-dive off shore to tag hammerheads and film baby sea lions at play. From sunbathing penguins to iguanas that have learnt to swim, Mission Galápagos reveals just how far a species will stretch itself in order to survive.
