Take the island hop of your life. Discover the rich variety of islands that are the Caribbean, and what forces have shaped this violent paradise. From the ring of fire of volcanoes that form the Windward and Leeward Islands, to the Great Bahama Banks of flat limestone, to the caves and mountains of Cuba we explore the riches of the Caribbean and the processes that shape them. Even now the volcanoes are still active, as shown by the devastating events of Montserrat and Martinique.
The Caribbean is the original tropical paradise: buzzing with beauty, colour and variety. It holds a stunning diversity of life, from the world's smallest hummingbird to the world's largest butterfly. Across the land legions of migrating land crabs march in synchrony to spawn. And we drop into the Western hemisphere's largest colony of magnificent frigate birds in Barbuda. In the seas dolphins and whales congregate to share a little piece of tropical paradise. Each island has its own unique mixture of weird and wonderful creatures. But what factors lead to this diversity. Piecing together the lives of these extraordinary animals is like piecing together an incredible jigsaw puzzle that is the Caribbean.
This seemingly perfect paradise has been shaped by some of the planet's most devastating forces - active volcanoes, and earthquakes. These islands are still being formed under the massive pressures of tectonic movement. A violent Eden has lead to a garden of delight.
