Post-Typhoon Recovery -- Tama River, Japan
In 2019 a strong typhoon devastated parts of Japan. Viewers of the Darwin program wrote to us expressing concern for the wildlife we profiled in an earlier episode inhabiting the banks of Tokyo's Tama River. Can the "Tamazon" ecosystem still support the deer, boar, badgers and weasels? Our cameras indeed revealed unparalleled destruction ... but also rejuvenation. Waterways have changed course. Sandbars have shifted. And the wildlife? Though challenges remain, the footage paints a rosy future.
