The Nature of Things Suzuki Diaries 2: Coastal Canada

The Nature of Things Suzuki Diaries 2: Coastal Canada

The Suzuki Diaries is an adventure, a journey and a call to action. David Suzuki and his youngest daughter Sarika hit the road again, this time to visit Canada's coastal communities. Not only does Canada have the longest coastline in the world, but Canadians also have storied relationships with the waters that surround them. This time father and daughter reverse roles: marine biologist Sarika is the expert and David, the protégé. Their passion for the ocean's future is at the forefront of this story that touches on the coastal Canadian way of life, the sheer beauty of the ocean, and the glimmer of hope that we can save it. Whether the two are camping at the edge of the retreating Arctic ice floe, learning about sustainable shifts in the East Coast fisheries, or exploring the Gwaii Haanas Marine Conservation area and other eco initiatives on the West Coast, David and Sarika reveal what the ocean means to them and why it is important to focus on what can be done.
