Wild Canada

From the filmmakers of the acclaimed series Human Planet and Planet Earth comes WILD CANADA, an epic four-part series presented by THE NATURE OF THINGS that takes place through time and across the vast scale of the Canadian landscape, revealing the country as it has never been seen before.

Like the groundbreaking Planet Earth series, WILD CANADA takes an awe-inspiring look at the world around us, shot with ultra-high-definition cameras that capture sweeping panoramas and extraordinary close-ups of Canada’s majestic terrain and diverse species. This is the largest natural history survey of Canada in our generation — filmed across the country, showing animal behaviour never before captured.

From the spectacle of massive humpback whales feeding off the coast of Newfoundland to ice-covered grizzly bears living near the Arctic Circle, to pronghorn antelope — the fastest hoofed animals on earth — racing across the prairies, the scope of this television series is unequalled. The stunning visuals are matched by a dramatic narrative, which tells the story of how humans have made their mark over millennia in often surprising ways. Unlike any nature documentary series before it, WILD CANADA puts people back in the picture.
