Unforgettable footage and extraordinary animation explain the latest information we have of whale behavior. Since the U.S. Navy declassified top-secret anti-submarine sonar technology, researchers are making important new discoveries that whales can talk to each other over distances of 1,000 miles and up. Vocalizations provide information about migration routes, underwater obstacles, communication about prey during cooperative feeding, and “songs” for social communication.
This program shows that whales, like many others creatures sharing this planet with us, have a much more complex social life than we knew.
Journey to the last great wilderness of North America where polar bears roam and caribou herds congregate by the thousands. Here is where belugas, walruses, and bowhead whales migrate through the ice-laden arctic seas during summer. See hundreds of species of birds arrive to breed on the tundra and witness how the mighty muskox clash for breeding rights. Marvel at the beauty of the Arctic and the magic of the Northern Lights.
