Athabasca (Canada)

Hidden World with David Gasman
S1:Ep148 mins1996

One of the greatest inland deltas on Earth, the Athabasca River Delta is located in the Northern part of the Western Canadian Plain. In this immensity of forests, prairies, lakes and rivers lies the Wood Buffalo National Park, one of the world’s greatest remaining natural reserves, home to great herds of wood bison and to the wolf-packs who share their lives.

Here the natural world is still resplendent and there are few visible traces of pollution, but even in this remote place, questionable industry practices and the human hunger for energy threaten the ecology.
