Canadian Wilderness Journal
This half-hour nature series chronicled the dedicated work of Canadians in a wide range of wildlife fields. The filmmakers travelled the country to profile naturalists in their own environments. Episodes included a program from the London, Ontario backyard of cinematographer Joe Milner, where migratory patterns brought almost every North American species of hawk into his sights, and the Churchill, Manitoba home of wildlife artist Audrey Casey where she painted from real life the migrating polar bears of the region. Other episodes included whale-watching from the mountainous fjords of the lower St. Lawrence River, an animal sanctuary in northern Ontario, and one man's study of animals on the prairie wetlands.
