Lost Worlds: Life in the Balance

Director(s): Bayley Silleck
Production: IMAX
40 min

species of animals, plants, insects,

and other organisms are being

driven to extinction each year,

with unknown consequences.

We are changing the world

too quickly for animals

to be able to change with it

In major institutions around the world,

scientists are now working against time,

to find and understand all the

diversity of life that remains.

Nearly two million species from beetles

to blue whales, have been classified,

but there could be ten times that many,

still undiscovered.

The priority now is to

explore the places

with the most unique biodivercity...

where the web of life

is still intact

Fabian Michelangeli of the American

Museum of Natural History

is going back to his native Venezuela

to join a Rapid Assessment on an expedition...

to the fabled "Lost World" that inspired

the novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

I don't think we'll find a dinosaur

on this trip,

but in all of South America,

there's no place more incredible

than the table mountains

of Southern Venezuela.

The expedition is being organized in

the capital of Venezuela - Caracas.

Leader of the Rapid Assessment is biologist Margarita Lampo,

whose specialty is amphibians.

I always had a passion for animals,

ever since I was a little kid,

I liked the idea that everything

in nature

was connected to something else.

For ten years now,

I've been studying frogs and toads.

These creatures can tell us so much

about the health of the places

where they live.

My colleague Celsi Senaris and I

are concerned by evidence that

frog populations are declining

all over the world.

Now we have the chance

to search for them

in a place few people

have ever been.

For the next few weeks, we'll be

living in very different conditions.

We're heading southeast towards Canaima.

The plan is to meet our guide
