Thus a tough battle lies ahead for scientists and conservationists trying to maintain what is left of native species. National Geographic: Hawaii - Strangers in Paradise follows several of the groups trying to save Hawaii from its invaders. The program introduces several of the endangered plants and animals, shows how they live, and discusses the underlying causes of population decline. ~ Ed Atkinson, All Movie Guide National Geographic: Everglades - Secrets of the Swamp What at first appears to be a myriad of angry alligators floating in the murky waters of the Everglades, waiting to pounce on unsuspecting tourists, is in fact a delicate ecosystem vital to the environment of South Florida. Brought to video by National Geographic, this video is a swamp boat ride through the salty mangrove and saw-grass prairies to a secret place of survival. Between the sediments of silt and sand, wonderful creatures reside, such as the West Indian Manatee, the American White Pelican, the Roseate Spoonbill, and the rarest and most elusive native animal of the region -- the Florida Panther. ~ C.
