WILDLIFE -- A Portrait of the Wild: The North Woods of Canada

The North Woods region in Canada's interior occupies one-third of the country's land area. It is also a treasure trove of flora and fauna. Roaming its reaches are bison, which can reach a weight of one ton; reindeer, with their magnificent antlers; and other indigenous creatures like wildcats and cranes. The region also features vast marshlands and the world's northernmost sand dunes. At night the spectacular aurora borealis lights up the sky. Viewers will take a 1,300-kilometer journey from north to south through the Canadian North Woods meeting a variety of animals and enjoying the allure of the region's boundless natural beauty.
