The Ocean’s Greatest Feast
At the start of every winter, the coast of South Africa sees billions of little fish converge in the biggest biomass migration on the planet. It’s the annual sardine run – a literal force of nature that feeds an entire coastline. Strangest of all – they don’t have to go. The sardines ride a cold current, through a gauntlet of predators, against all odds of survival, but the purpose of the journey remains a mystery. They race past a hungry seal colony, endure an aerial assault by gannets and face hungry sharks. When dolphins show up, the feast kicks into even higher gear, before orcas arrive with a final surprise.
