Summary:
The shallow Sea of Cortez, located between mainland Mexico and the Baja Peninsula, is one of earth's most unusual ecosystems. Technically part of the Sonoran Desert, it is home to a great diversity of species, such as the California sea lion, as well as many migratory species from the Pacific, including sperm whales. Today, man's influence is affecting this ecosystem in a variety of ways, including a decline in hammerhead shark populations and a surprising increase in the numbers of Humbolt squid. Even as humans have put it under pressure life in the Sea of Cortez continues to adapt and thrive. The program follows Philippe Cousteau and a team of marine scientists as they explore the changes facing this unique ecosystem.

Only available in the US.
