Birds, foxes and other animals react to ash from a volcanic eruption on the island of New-Britain.
Long Description: 
On the volcanic island of New-Britain off the coast of Papua New Guinea, a handful of animals have learned to live with the Earth's moods. When ash from a volcanic eruption invades their habitat, the choice is simple: leave or stay and adapt. In truth, it's not that easy, since volcanoes and their actions are unpredictable and each creature responds in its own way. This episode presents the reactions of strange birds, mischievous hermit crabs and gregarious flying foxes as well as the majestic Priamus butterflies.
