(New York) - This December, Animal Planet chronicles two remarkable journeys that provide an exclusive look at the world we inhabit with our animal counterparts. Under the Animal Planet Presents banner comes KILLER WHALES: THE MEGA HUNT, the never-before-documented ocean spectacle that has experts frantically searching for answers and I BOUGHT A RAINFOREST, one man's ambitious mission to rescue the Amazon rainforest. With unprecedented access to our world's incredible phenomena, Animal Planet Presents documentaries and films feature blue-chip technology from top filmmakers. KILLER WHALES: THE MEGA HUNT premieres Sunday, December 4 from 7-9PM ET/PT, and I BOUGHT A RAINFOREST premieres Tuesday, December 6 from 9-11PM ET/PT.

Around the globe, an epic hunt between two unlikely foes is discovered off the coast of South Africa. KILLER WHALES: THE MEGA HUNT reveals the extraordinary hunt of 5,000 dolphins by their close-relatives - intelligent killer whales. In a contest of speed, strength and intelligence, the bewildering pod of dolphins flee their demise once a year. A team of baffled researchers are desperately seeking to understand the behavior and circumstances that initiate this deadly pursuit.

I BOUGHT A RAINFOREST follows professional wildlife cameraman Charlie Hamilton Jones, who impulsively buys 100 acres of the Amazon rainforest sight unseen in an effort to preserve the flourishing ecosystem from destruction. To protect the animals, Charlie must fend off illegal loggers, miners and cattle ranchers whose livelihood depends on dismantling the distinctive animal kingdom. Charlie is determined to save the rainforest for future generations, but is one man's ambition enough to turn things around?

KILLER WHALES: THE MEGA HUNT is produced for Animal Planet by Table Mountain Films. For Table Mountain Films, Joe Kennedy and Katharina Pechel are executive producers.

I BOUGHT A RAINFOREST is produced for Animal Planet by Hat Trick International Ltd. For Hat Trick International Ltd., Will Anderson, Andrew Palmer and Matt Cole are executive producers. For Animal Planet, Erin Wanner is executive producer.
