The equator wraps Earth in a 40,000 kilometre ribbon of sunlight, abundance and astonishing nature. In doing so, it crosses the continents of Africa, Asia, and America, as well as the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. Scientists refer to it as the cradle of life because all species first arose here, and as the museum of life because creatures here rarely go extinct. Now, as the warmest region of our planet gets hotter because of global warming, the equatorial paradise is changing. Equator – The Line Of Life is an engrossing series that explores this change while revelling in the fascinating beauty of this amazing place that holds the greatest biodiversity on Earth.
