Tune in this Wednesday, Nov. 26th at 7:00 p.m., when CBC television’s The Nature of Things with David Suzuki, will air the documentary special Canada's Amazon: A Boreal Forest Journey. The one-hour program will be rebroadcast on Sunday, November 30th at 5 p.m..

This episode of The Nature of Things documents two of the ten river journeys of the Boreal Rendezvous. The Boreal Rendezvous was an exciting month-long celebration that the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society , in partnership with the David Suzuki Foundation and the Canadian Boreal Initiative, undertook this summer to raise awareness about Canada's Boreal Forest. Click here to learn more about the Boreal Rendezvous.

Wrapping Canada like a green cloak, from Newfoundland-Labrador to British Columbia and the Yukon, Canada's Boreal Forest is one of the largest intact wilderness areas left on Earth. Canada's Amazon: A Boreal Forest Journey will explore this rich forest ecosystem, celebrating its beauty as well as examining threats to its survival.

Wednesday night’s broadcast will showcase the magnificent Nahanni River in the Northwest Territories and the more industrialized Athabasca River in Northern Alberta. Each river journey includes a host of engaging characters from scientists and conservationists to local First Nations people and well-known Canadians.

The Athabasca trip features David Suzuki, world-renowned ecologist David Schindler, and NHL great Ken Dryden. On the Nahanni River, Justin Trudeau retraces the route taken by his father more than 30 years ago, a trip that led to the creation of the Nahanni National Park Reserve.

The boreal forest covers over 50 per cent of Canada's landmass and presents one of the last and best opportunities in the world to protect vast tracts of undisturbed wilderness. Along with the Amazon Rainforest and the Russian Boreal, it is one of the three largest forests left on Earth.
