This is the first ever made in-depth ‘blue-chip’ wildlife film about Tasmania’s animals. It is part of the successful Living Eden’s series that features the World’s last unspoiled places.
Here, on the island south of Eastern Australia a bizarre array of creatures struggle for survival in one of the most beautiful and diverse wildernesses left on Earth. Snow-capped mountains, wild rivers and majestic temperate rainforests play host to ferocious Tasmanian devils, enigmatic marsupial Quolls and giant birds, such as the sea eagle and shy albatross.
The seas around Tasmania boast spectacular giant kelp forests and prehistoric animals like the weedy sea dragon and tasseled anglerfish, both found nowhere else on Earth. Protected by its isolation, this pristine world is a rare haven – an island paradise called Tasmania.
