The Forgotten Coast

The Forgotten Coast: Return to Wild Florida

 

Following in the footsteps of a wandering Florida black bear, three friends leave civilization and enter a lost American wilderness on a rugged thousand-mile journey by foot, paddle, and bike. Traversing Florida’s vast and seldom seen “Forgotten Coast,” the expedition encounters stunning and rare wildlife including black bears, manatees, alligators, ancient river fish, and endangered woodpeckers – all living within a fragile wildlife corridor stretching from the Everglades to the Florida-Alabama border. The Suncoast Emmy-Award winning documentary was also awarded the Exploration and Adventure award at the 2016 BLUE Ocean Film Festival.

Part 2 of 3

 

Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan are live once more from the beautiful Squam Lake in New Hampshire, where overnight events have already thrown up plenty of surprises on the live cameras, including an update on the flying squirrels and new visitors to the carcass camera.

 

Gillian Burke is looking into the bird life of the region, from barred owls to pileated woodpeckers, before getting up close with one of New England’s smallest owls, the saw-whet.

 

Chris reports back on a dawn trip he took to one of the region’s migration hotspots, Michaela comes face to face with an elusive bobcat, and we meet the man who is studying the huge numbers of great white sharks that come to New England’s coastline at this time of year.
