Some Background about the TVO Series:
Join us on a journey across Canada as we look at our nation’s breathtaking biosphere reserves in this eight-part cinematic documentary series. We’ll explore some of the amazing places that make up our 18 UNESCO-designated biosphere reserves and what makes them special, from geological, ecological, historical and cultural perspectives. Nearly two million people live in these reserves, and we’ll meet the passionate residents on a quest to find a balance between economic prosperity and environmental protection. We’ll also investigate the reserves as living laboratories by joining academics, citizen scientists and indigenous knowledge-keepers in their research to create a more sustainable future for both Canadians and the environments in which we live.
