Eden: Untamed Planet

A look at how the Galapagos became one of the most important areas of biodiversity in the world. Only the hardiest pioneers could reach this otherworldly outpost – tossed here by storms and strong currents, they found an unspoilt land of endless possibilities. 

With no competition, they could rule supreme, turning this seemingly inhospitable place into their very own Eden. Now, the islands are home to almost 2,000 species found nowhere else, including 97% of its reptiles and mammals.
