Watch the three-part Britain's Treasure Islands documentary series on BBC FOUR, starting Tue 12 Apr 2016 21:00. (repeated Wed 13 Apr 2016 20:00).

This mini-documentary explores the wildlife and conservation of the Cayman Islands, a UK Overseas Territory in the Caribbean comprising Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac. All three islands are home to a staggering diversity of wildlife that occurs in tropical dry forests, mangrove forests and vast seabird colonies. In this film, we encounter fiddler crabs, snakes, land hermit crabs, exquisite orchids and many unique birds that occur no where else on Earth. The Cayman Islands are also home to two unique iguanas, both of which are critically rare. Grand Cayman's blue iguana is so called for its striking blue colouration. The blue iguana was predicted to become extinct, but conservationists acted just in time by setting up a very successful breeding programme, and the species has been saved for the future. Off shore, diverse coral reefs are renowned across the world, and are the site for immense grouper spawning aggregations - including the largest remaining aggregation events left in the Caribbean.

This film is one of forty mini-documentaries made from the footage not used in the broadcast series.
