A few days ago, while taking care of two grandsons, I searched Netflix for a program that we all might enjoy. Fortunately, I came across Wild North, a three episode series on the landscape, seasons and wildlife of Norway.
Narrated in English, the program covers the Coastal, Forest and Mountain ecosystems of that far northern country, offering gorgeous scenery and close-up video of the region's many wild residents. Unlike some modern documentaries, Wild North does not humanize or sanitize nature, providing a balanced overview of her complex web of life.
In many ways, the coverage of life in polar or sub-polar ecosystems is especially inspiring. Creatures that inhabit those life zones must deal with challenges that go well beyond the typical predator-prey relationships. Wild North highlights that fact and is recommended for young and veteran naturalists alike.
