Natural World: Walruses for BBC Two
Weighing in at almost two tons and with huge tusks, a male walrus is not the sort of animal you necessarily want to get close to but biologist Holley Muraco has developed a close bond with one particular male walrus called Sivuqaq. Holley travels to the wilds of Alaska to try to get a better understanding of walruses and in the process help Sivuqaq become a dad.
The Real Dingo for Terra Mater
The Dingo is one of the most controversial dogs on the planet. To some people it is a pest; to others it is an iconic Australian animal. Researcher Brad Purcell has been studying a motley pack of dingoes just a couple hours from Sydney in the Blue Mountains. He hopes his research will make people think differently about dingoes.
Planet Parrot for Terra Mater
More than 70,000 parrots live wild in cities across the globe. Planet Parrot explores the inexorable rise of the urban parrot – from monk parakeets adapting to city life in America and Europe to sulphur-crested cockatoos in Melbourne and Singapore. Planet Parrot discovers the many ways parrots have adapted to a metropolitan lifestyle.
