Caribou

Episode 2 of 3

Nature documentary series. Liz Bonnin leads a team using cutting-edge technology to follow caribou on a 5,000km migration through the Arctic wilderness of Canada and Alaska.

A hundred thousand caribou face starving bears and wolves, deadly frozen rivers and rugged mountains as they undertake the world's longest land migration - 5,000 kilometres through the frozen Arctic wilderness of Canada and Alaska.

Liz Bonnin leads a team of scientists and film-makers using cutting-edge technology to follow the herd, providing insights into the individual lives of the animals. The caribou must reach their calving grounds before they give birth - failure would spell disaster.
