Summary
Seed Bank- Here, at the millennium seed bank in Britain, more than one billion plant seeds are housed. The landmark conservation project, run by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, is a cooperative venture involving 50 countries. The project was launched following the first earth summit in Rio in 1992 and is a safeguard against the growing threat of environmental catastrophe. China Alligators- it's said to have inspired ancient art and literature on China's Dragon, but the Chinese Alligator itself is almost past history. Today fewer than 200 survive in the wild. Also known as the Yangtze Alligator, it has been decades since the alligator swam in the river. Shy and solitary, the alligators retreated south as river side development gobbled up wetlands, fouled the river and slowed its once mighty flow. With Its habitat diminished, the alligator population plunged almost to the point of extinction. Netherlands Greenhouses- The Netherlands is one of the World's top food producers and exporters. Almost 11,000 hectares of the countryside is covered with greenhouses which, according to Greenpeace, contribute 12% of the nation's carbon emissions. However, new energy efficient glasshouses currently on trial could dramatically cut energy consumption and even generate power to go into the national grid. Indonesian Cave Music - In a mountainous region of the island of Java is the Tabuhan Cave. Here ancient stone formations and cultural traditions come together in a unique sensory experience. Local musicians gather every weekend to create traditional rhythmic gamelan music, using the stalactites and stalagmites of the cave. Knut Birthday- It was all cheers at Germany's Berlin Zoo when beloved polar bear, Knut, turned one. With hundreds of fans and well-wishers in attendance, Knut's enduring celebrity status was very apparent. Knut and his twin were abandoned at birth, and rescued by keepers. When his four day old brother died, Knut became the first polar bear cub to be born and survive at the zoo in over 30 years. Brazil Sea Erosion- In this quiet part of Brazil, global warming and rising seas are not future possibilities. They are today's grim reality as the township of Atafona disappears into the ocean. An early victim of environmental change, this area has been gradually eroding for several years. To date 183 buildings have been destroyed and the marine lighthouse moved twice in the past 30 years. National Trust- Britain's biggest landowner--with more than 1,000 kilometres of coastline and a quarter of a million hectares of open countryside--is the National Trust. With a mandate to preserve the UK's areas of natural beauty, the trust is examining strategies for dealing with climate change, which it says is already having an impact
