Natural World: Wild Indonesia

Natural World: Wild Indonesia

Strung out along 5,000 kilometres of the Equator, between Asia and Australia, Indonesia's 17,000 islands make up the largest and most varied archipelago on Earth. From freezing glaciers to coral reefs, orangutans to Komodo dragons, the sheer diversity of landscapes and life defies the imagination. This series tells the story of one of the world's most fascinating regions and its magical wildlife.
