Plot Synopsis

WILD SRI LANKA is a three-part series that explores the island of Sri Lanka, which harbors spectacular creatures -- from the largest mammal on earth, the blue whale, to tiny ants that swarm through the rainforest. This series reveals how -- from the moment Sri Lanka fractured from the primeval supercontinent Gondwana and drifted to its present position -- this island has been ruled by one unstoppable force: water. Each one-hour episode focuses on a different environment, including the lakes, the forests, and the coast. Here, food is plentiful, as populations of deer feed on the grass sustained by thousands of man-made lakes. These pools of blue are the centre of life on the flat plains of Sri Lanka. Because, as the monsoons recede and the sun scorches an otherwise parched land, these lakes nourish the land. The forests of Sri Lanka rise above the rest of the country like islands out of the sea. Here, species found nowhere else in the world have been marooned on high forest plateaus, isolated from the rest of Sri Lanka, as they are unable to cross from one patch of forest to another. As the sun rises over the blue waters off the southern coast of Sri Lanka, the largest mammal on earth breaks the surface. Beneath these waves lives a unique population of pygmy blue whales, which feed, mate and play close to the shore in greater numbers than any other blue whale population on the planet. Nat Geo Wild aired the U.S. premiere of this series on Sunday, February 14, 2016 from 8-11pm ET/PT, showing all three episodes back to back.
