The Desert Sea
screenable online: 2 episodes
In the southwest of the United States there is a desert like no other. One that carries more examples of life than many of the earth’s more fertile regions. America’s iconic Sonoran Desert is a desert in every sense of the word, but with a climatic and geologic quirk an abundance of life has evolved and adapted here.
Filmed in Ultra High Definition, “The Desert Sea” is a stunning naturalhistory series that explores this unique desert and the abundant and diverse creatures that have adapted to life here: mammals like the Pronghorn antelope, the speedy jackrabbit and the cougar; large birds including the road runner, condor and Harris hawk; downright weird reptiles such as the Gila monster, the chuckwalla and the horned lizard; and a rich coastal marine environment of sea lions, dolphins and even blue whales.
