The Eternal Frontier+
Go on an extraordinary journey from the spectacle of humpback whales feeding on capelin off Newfoundland to the world's largest intact temperate rainforest in British Columbia that is home to the rare 'white' black bear. Acrobatic flying squirrels and thousands of mating red-sided garter snakes are just some of the incredible array of wildlife we see.
The Wild West+
Journey from the secret world of Canada's wettest and most biologically diverse landscape, the temperate coastal rainforest high up to the rugged snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains. The stories are intimate and epic: from wolves that fish for salmon to the thrilling sounds of head-butting male big horn sheep, to ice-covered grizzly bears living near the Arctic Circle. The ancient coastal forests hide rarely told stories of human and wildlife relationships that have co-existed for thousands of years.
From the prairies to Canada's vast boreal forest that stretches almost from coast to coast, we reveal a huge wilderness of extremes that has been shaped over millennia by both humans and wildfires. Here pronghorn antelope, the fastest hoofed land animal on earth, still haunt the grasslands, the elusive wolverine thrives in the icy remote northern forests and beaver share their cozy lodges with grateful muskrats
The Canadian Arctic is a world of extremes - the vast and seemingly barren landscapes of rock, ice and snow present harsh conditions for life. Nevertheless, this northern polar region of our planet is inhabited by wildlife and people who have found an amazing variety of ways to survive. From polar bear cubs making their first discovery of ice to a caribou calf 'dancing' in the chilly spring air, to eider ducks diving under the ice to find mussels, we witness the extremes and wonders of life far north.
