Channel Islands Fox

'The Assassin Bugs' and 'Channel Islands'

They’re tiny, weaponized, and carry a potentially deadly payload. They’re called “Assassin Bugs” and they can be as common as the backyard mosquito or as exotic as the so-called “kissing bug"--and they're here in Southern California, spreading some of the deadliest - and neglected- diseases in the world.

Get an exclusive look at one of country's most beautiful and least visited national parks and see why it's often called the Galapagos of North America. It's home to one of the biggest comebacks in wildlife history. Travel with Val Zavala to the Channel Islands and learn how the Island Fox came back from the brink of extinction.
