“We just have a new appreciation for how catastrophic an event like this can be. We know how vulnerable many species are to manmade pollution,” says Director and Executive Producer Ian Herring, “It’s a shame that we only truly appreciate wildlife when it’s threatened or gone.”

The team chose a different theme for their series, though, to capture the beauty and diversity of wildlife in the Bahamas. “
