EXPEDITION WILD (USA, 2010, 50 min.)
World Premiere The premiere episode of Expedition Wild is a multipart look at North America’s mightiest carnivores, featuring naturalist Casey Anderson and his best friend Brutus, an 800-pound grizzly bear. On Alaska’s Kodiak Island Casey gets knee-deep in grizzly life in order to teach Brutus the ways of his wild relatives. This population of more than 3,500 bears offers Casey a chance to witness how they catch wild salmon and feed their young. Casey then returns to Montana to see if he can teach a bear raised in captivity to fish for himself in a specially designed aquarium. Produced by Grizzly Creek Films for National Geographic Wild Television.
Discussion with naturalist Casey Anderson follows screening.
