The Nature of Things Canada's Amazon: A Boreal Forest Journey

The Nature of Things Canada's Amazon: A Boreal Forest Journey

Wrapped like a green cloak around the shoulders of Canada, from Newfoundland and Labrador to British Columbia and the Yukon, the boreal forest covers over 50% of Canada's land mass. The Canadian Boreal presents one of the last and best opportunities in the world to protect vast tracts of undisturbed wilderness. The film follows two canoe trips through the forest, showcasing the magnificent Nahanni River in the Northwest Territories and the more industrialized Athabasca River in Northern Alberta. Sadly, during the journey down the Athabasca River, viewers witness the effects of industrial development.
