Saving Species - Episode 33


33/40. We tend to think of Sloths living in the Amazon, but they also live on the islands off the Atlantic coast of Panama. Linked to a natural history film being broadcast this week on BBC 2 "Decade of Discovery", Saving Species has been sent a report by our team out there about the pressures impacting on the Sloths that live on these islands at the end of the Caribbean chain. We have the first of our special Ladybird Book series which has been recorded through the year. Chris Sperring takes the first editions of the famous book series about Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter - published in 1959 - and explores what species have gone, what have arrived and what hasn't changed. For sure, it's full of surprises. Presented by Brett Westwood Produced by Sheena Duncan Series Editor Julian Hector.
