The Wild Shore
From the wild Labrador coast to the breathtakingly beautiful Bruce Peninsula, this program explores the great wilderness of Canada’s Eastern Coast. Discover a surprising wealth of wildlife in the icy seas at the edge of the Arctic. Thrill to panoramic aerial views of the Torngats, among the oldest mountains on the planet. You’ll witness a staggering array of wildlife, including the world’s larges her of caribou, Red and Arctic fox in a desperate search for winter food, river otters who can hold their breath underwater for up to eight minutes, and the Arctic Tern, making a breeding stop along its Pole-to-Pole migratory journey. Encounter graceful beluga whales in the St. Lawrence River, cruise the spectacular, but deadly, Iceberg Alley, which claimed the ill-fated Titanic, and get a unique insight into our planet’s past in the magnificent geological marvel, Gros Morne National Park. Brave the treacherous waters off Anticosti Island, the “graveyard of the gulf” that has claimed more than 400 ships, and wander Fathom Five National Marine Park, a bird and plant lover’s paradise.
