A WHALE’S WORTH

The Canary Islands are a whale Paradise. Their waters hold more than a third of the world’s species, making it the most important enclave in the European Union, and one of the most relevant globally.

Today, this paradise is being threatened by different human pressures, such as boat collisions, plastic consumption and climate change. This struggle aggravates their mortality each year and makes us face ourselves as the ones responsible for their survival, forcing us to rethink how much we value these animals currently.

How much is a whale worth? Can you put a price on the life of such a majestic animal? How can we estimate that value? How has the value that human beings give to whales changed throughout history? What are whales used and needed for?

To answer all these questions, Natacha Aguilar, an eminent Canarian scientist and whale expert, backed up by a group of scientists and non-profit organizations, will guide us in a spectacular journey through time and space to discover the never-told stories of the lives of these animals.

WILD CANARY ISLANDS

When rocks engulfed by flames emerge from the middle of the ocean, new opportunities arise for the species that manage to reach them… This is the case of the Canary Islands, eight islands born from fire, very different from each other, that form an archipelago full of life. The castaways that reached their coasts millions of years ago have evolved due to their geographic isolation, becoming endemic species and creating astonishing ecosystems, unique in the world.

THE PREDATORS’ PLAYBOOK

When a pride of lionesses stalks their prey, a few seconds separate them from success or failure… Only the perfect synchronization between the players will lead their lunch to the hunter hidden among the vegetation, which will lead, in the last moment, a surprise attack. Hunting is not an easy task, however, all predators have a plan, a specific strategy that allows them to exploit their resources with maximum efficiency. Perhaps it is their speed, power, patience or reflexes… “The Predators’ Playbook” emphasizes the strategies used during the hunt, a tragic game in which you win or die. Let the game begin.

A QUESTION OF LOVE?

We often hear that feeling and loving are exclusive to human beings but… what is love, actually? In science, it all comes down to a simple cocktail of neurotransmitters and hormones that produce a feeling of attachment to other beings. If so, would the ability to love only be unique to humans? Many animals have mouths, noses, and eyes, like us. They eat, play, take care of their own, and protect their children with their own lives… All of which are behaviours that we also observe in our own species. Are we, at heart, so different? Discover in “A Question Of Love”, a passionate look at a passionate nature.

MAWINDO. THE DRAMA OF THE SERENGETI

Something is happening in the African savannah… It seems that a new super predator, without fangs or claws, has infiltrated this timeless place turning its residents into easy prey to hunt… with a single shot. In the animal world, there are two types of hunters, those who hunt for survival and those who hunt for fun, yet they all depend on “Mawindo” a word that in Swahili means “the one who is going to be hunted”, commonly known as “prey”. This documentary brings a new look to the classic conception of hunters and preys: a change of protagonists to reveal how the victims who inhabit the Serengeti steppe organize, live and feel. A manifestation of its importance, key in all ecosystems, to remind us that without any prey there could not be any hunters.
