Bahama Blue is an innovative series that explores the islands of the Bahamas in a search for wildlife.

Its picture perfect beauty draws us into a world where life and death unfold in natural and sometimes horrifying order. The series focuses on how this struggle plays out within the unique geographical features of the Bahamas including mangroves, deep blue water, sand flats, coral, as well as caves and blue holes - features that both define and interact with the diverse wildlife.
