JungleLarge Print - 2005
For zoologist Charlotte Uhlenbroek, being besieged by ants or dangled from a balloon high above the forest is all in a day's work. In making her new BBC TV series Jungle she had to deal with all this and more as she investigated the extraordinary relationship between the plants and animals - and people - of the rainforest. Using the latest technology, Charlotte was able to explore the tree canopy in Borneo - a landscape hundreds of feet off the ground, full of all kinds of exotic plant and animal life. Among her other challenges were a boat trip through the flooded forest of the Amazon where pink dolphins swim between the trees and a journey through the dense jungle of the Congo, last refuge of our cousins the gorillas. In the tradition of David Attenborough and Gerald Durrell, Charlotte Uhlenbroek describes her encounters with the world's most exotic flora and fauna in the most entertaining and informative way. Jungle is essential reading for all those who care about the wildest and most vulnerable places on earth - and want to know more.
