Explore the unique array of Asian and Arctic species that inhabit Japan, an expansive chain of 6,852 islands stretching over 2,400 kilometers and covering a range of wildly diverse climatic zones including snow-covered mountains and steamy mangroves. This is home to wildlife not found anywhere else on Earth, including some of the planet’s hardiest species. Winter in Japan’s central and northern islands can be savage. In bleak, inhospitable conditions in Honshu, snow monkeys or Japanese macaques endure the bitter cold of Hell’s Valley by basking in warm volcanic pools.

On the stunning island of Palawan, where craggy limestone cliffs poke out from the dense jungle, giant bugs roam the land. Predators line the edge of the forests, while rivers help carve one of the world’s most extensive cave systems, a subterranean cavernous world crowded with bats, whip scorpions, tarantulas, and other insects.

The Falklands’ sandy beaches and rolling meadows combine to make it one of the world’s premiere penguin sanctuaries. Over a million breed on the islands each summer. Pandemonium breaks out in a rockhopper penguin colony, sea lions ambush gentoo penguins in the surf, Skuar scavenge carcasses of Megellanic penguins that have washed ashore, and black-browed albatrosses perform their romantic courtship rituals.
