[edit] Information

Amazing Journeys takes audiences on six extraordinary journeys of survival and migration. Depicting migration as an endless search for the best conditions in which to thrive and successfully adapt, the film explores the wonders and mysteries surrounding some of earth's most spectacular wildlife and native people. Witness the mysterious migration of more than 120 million red crabs on tiny Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean. In order to to mate and spawn, millions of crabs must scuttle through the island's only town to reach its shores. Female crabs are unable to swim, yet march bravely to the shore's edge to release their eggs. Watch as so many crabs skitter sideways that the land itself seems to pulsate and quiver. Experience the longest and largest insect migration as monarch butterflies travel 2,500 miles through North America. Witness up close the birth of a butterfly and the various stages of the life of a monarch. Enter a golden blizzard as tens of millions of monarch butterflies fill the sky in the hidden highlands of Mexico. Feel the hushed, sublime wonder of being surrounded by a myriad of these air-dancing creatures. Take flight alongside migratory birds who possess the most varied display of navigational abilities. Feel the exhilaration from an arm's-length-view of the race down the runway, then the takeoff and ascent of sleek and powerful Canadian geese as they begin their journey south. Navigating by sun, stars and instinct, these birds instinctively know when to begin migrating by sensing seasonal signals of changing temperatures and day lengths. They possess a genetically imprinted "flight manual" which allows them to respond to their surroundings and recognize their destinations. Watch as hundreds of migrating zebras travel over 500 miles through the vast plains of East Africa. Experience the life and death dramas as we follow them through their encounters with ambushing packs of lions and hyenas. Join the sweeping spectacle as they lead the Great Migration of Africa's greatest predators through crocodile-filled rivers.
