Summary
Viking Ship Netherlands- American, Robert McDonald, is a man with plenty of determination. He has built a 15 metre long Viking ship painstakingly constructed from 15 million recycled ice-cream sticks and held together by 6 tons of glue. With the help of his son and 5,000 Dutch school-children, the project took four years to complete. Mexico Climate- Think Mexico, and you probably think cactus and scorching weather. But this diverse country also boasts elegant, snow-capped mountains and sprawling glaciers. Like other parts of the world however, a changing climate is having an impact, evident on two glaciers within the Izta-Popo National Park. Eco-Village- Located just four miles east of the Welsh border, the small town of Bishops Castle, in Shropshire, England, dates back 900 years. Unspoilt and charming, it's a welcoming and cultured rural community, with busy shops, cafes, a college and even two microbreweries. It's also the site of a new type of environmentally-friendly village housing, the first project in a concept of 'living villages'. Brazil Gardens- Within the heart of this famed, bustling city is a tranquil oasis. It is the Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden. It is also a vital link to Brazil's most threatened ecosystem, the Atlantic Rainforest. For over 500 years the rainforest has been eroded, largely for sugarcane and coffee. Now, a total of only around 7% remains in scattered fragments. Yet within this area is the greatest diversity of plant and animal species on our planet. Elephant Christmas- There's a new Christmas tradition in Berlin and it has some of the city's grown-ups very excited. Each year hundreds of unsold Christmas trees are delivered to the city's zoo, much to the delight of the elephants, and to the human onlookers. Dead Sea Israel- At 420 metres below sea level, the shores of the Dead sea are the lowest dry land on earth. Actually a salt lake, ten times more salty than the ocean, the Dead Sea is fed from the Jordan River, but 90% of this flow is diverted upstream, mainly for agriculture in Israel, Jordan and Palestine. So the Dead Sea's level is dropping one metre a year, and hundreds of massive sink holes have appeared along its shores--swallowing people, livestock, tractors, and even houses
