In the first episode, Islands at the Edge, the crew visit one of the largest great wildlife refuges on the planet—the island of South Georgia. Hundreds of thousands of penguins, fur seals, albatross and elephant seals come here in a breathtaking natural spectacle. But behind the astounding beauty of these sub-Antarctic islands lurks a silent and little-known secret. Despite their isolated location at the end of the Earth, the islands of the Southern Ocean are already feeling the devastating effects of climate change.
