HURRICANE: THE ANATOMY – SHAPING THE WILDERNESS

While humans try to predict the future, the natural world has evolved over millions of years to deal with the strongest storms on earth as and when they arrive.

Some run; others hide. This episode looks at varying strategies used by plants and animals that live in the hurricane zone and how they cope with the annual onslaught. From robust crocodiles, to fragile flamingos and delicate tropical shrimp; many species have found ingenious ways of dealing with the threat of hurricanes. The film reveals that hurricanes can by turn be both beneficial and harmful to individuals but, ultimately, at the level of populations, the deadly power of these storms provides new opportunities for life.
