Summary "Water Life captures extraordinary locations and intimate animal behavior never before seen on film. Two years in the making, this groundbreaking series takes viewers on an unprecedented visual journey to aquatic ecosystems on five continents, revealing how water shapes and sculpts the landscape and provides food and refuge for an astonishing array of species. From the biggest whale to the tiniest mosquito, every living being depends on the water and is linked to this liquid in a special way for its survival. But, water doesn't just sustain life, it also helps create vast landscapes such as caverns, sea beds, glaciers and valleys. Exploring a range of different ecosystems, Water Life looks at the different ways that animals and plants have adapted to them. The series also looks at how man has impacted these habitats"--Container
