Take a journey to the last truly great wilderness regions - the Arctic and the Antarctic.
Isolated by frozen seas and extreme weather, the poles support animals found nowhere else. Frozen Planet documents their behaviour, often for the first time, including the ingenious teamwork adopted by killer whales hunting other whales and seals in the Antarctic, the courtship of polar bears and the unforgettable hunting exploits of wolves in the far north.
Frozen Planet captures extraordinary views of vast frozen landscapes and animal behavior impossible to see from the ground, including the remote interior of the Antarctic continent and the migration of whales to the polar regions. The Frozen Planet team also takes us under the ice, into the heart of glaciers and inside volcanic ice-crystal caves.
Now that the poles are melting, changing forever the lives of the animals there and, indeed, the nature of the whole planet, this book reveals the frozen planet as we may never see it again.
