Storyline

Although merely 3% of water on earth, fresh water plays an important part in the planet's weather and erosion. It is immensely important for all non-marine wildlife, which drinks fresh water and swims, procreates, hunts in it. Its concentrations, such as rivers, lakes and swamps, abound in aquatic and other species, often adapted to 'wet' life. Written by KGF Vissers

Where To Find The Prescious Fresh Water
25 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Water, water everywhere........" Well, actually only a small percentage ( 3%) of he water in the world is "fresh water," according to this episode, but it means every everything to all living creatures on planet Earth.

In this third installment of the fabulously-filmed "Planet Earth" series, some of the sights we see are (1) the highest waterfall where water is just a mist by the time it's three-quarters of the way down; )2_ the largest lake, located in Eastern Siberia, and (3) the world's largest river: the Amazon, which holds more water than rivers numbers 2-9 put together! We also see a fair number of innocent animals, birds and fish eaten by giant, very nasty-looking salamanders, crocodiles and other predators.

Always searching for fresh water, we witness migrations such as the great wildebeest migration on the Serengeti Plain (and the humongous Nile crocodiles waiting for them).

Other highlights includes beautiful waterfalls, lush vegetation and some very strange-looking creatures (mostly fish).
