From Alaska's Katmai National Park to British Columbia's Princess Royal Island, we observe various species of bear and many other animals. We see them in their natural habitats, as they hunt, feed, fight, and nurture their young. We're searching for the rare Kermode bear, also known as the "ghost bear” or “spirit bear.” We then move to the turquoise-blue waters of the Grand Bahama Bank and Costa Rica to observe some unusual species of shark. The photography throughout is stunning.
