Summary
Wild Chronicles host Boyd Matson takes to the skies over South America with aerial photographer Robert Haas as he shoots incredible images for his remarkable new photography book, "Through the Eyes of the Condor." Hanging out the side of a helicopter, these adventurers will do anything for the shot. Haas captures the continent's defining landscapes from above to create an unprecedented big picture perspective of the largely unseen beauty below. In a determined effort to help protect the highly endangered black sea turtle, one extraordinary American biologist deploys Crittercam to record a turtle's view of life in the warm waters along the coast of Baja, Mexico. His work will not only fascinate, but may protect the species from extinction: gaining new insight on how and where the turtles feed may prevent these graceful and ancient creatures from disappearing forever.

Summary
Set in the heart of the Puuc hills, the imposing remains of Uxmal-Thrice Built, in the Yucatec Mayan language-testify to that city's extraordinary past. This program travels to the Yucatan Peninsula to explore the ruins of this significant Mayan cultural center. Aerial photography captures the magnitude of the site, while a ground-level inspection homes in on details such as the long-nosed Chac masks and carved mosaic facades associated with Mayan architectural ornamentation of the period. The Pyramid of the Magician, Nunnery Quadrangle, Governor's Palace, and Grand Pyramid are featured.
