Follow the sun as it touches the lives of creatures across the planet, bringing a fresh understanding of how the world is interconnected. From the North Pole to the South Pole, the program illuminates the importance of the sun’s energy to life on Earth and examines how the seasons produce some of the world’s greatest spectacles. Such animals as polar bears, impalas, fur seals, and emperor penguins must battle the varying temperatures and changing weather conditions of their ecosystems to survive—often resorting to hibernation and migration. For other species, like the critically endangered Amur leopard, the struggle proves even more desperate and complex.
