Expedition New Guinea

New Guinea is the most species-rich island on the planet, but its landscape is so inaccessible that much of the wildlife is barely known. Recent exploration has hinted at new and utterly unique species with strange adaptations thriving in dense forests, impenetrable swamps and on the edges of active volcanoes. Joined by world experts in extreme caving, the Expedition team explore this take on this harsh and mysterious ecosystem.
