Great Bear Rainforest
Availability:
  • 12pm, 2pm, 4pm
Duration:
45 min

On the remote Pacific shores of Canada lies earth’s largest coastal temperate rainforest, an almost fairy-tale-like chain of granite domes and thickly forested islands, spiked with ancient red cedar trees, carved through by crystal-clear, salmon-rich rivers and bursting with one-of-a-kind natural phenomena.

This primeval land hosts not only some of the world’s most enchanting animals, but also a rare white bear that is neither polar bear nor albino but a “spirit bear,” a black bear with a vanilla coat so mystically beautiful it is revered by the First Nations people who have lived among the bears and protected them for millennia.

Volcanoes: The Fires of Creation is a tale of science, culture, and thrilling adventure. Earth is a planet born of fire. For billions of years, volcanoes have helped create the world we know. From the continents to the air we breathe and even life itself, all have their origins in fire. These processes have created extraordinary ecosystems and wildlife habitats. With over 500 active volcanoes, the Earth is bursting at the seams with these forces of mass construction. The story of volcanoes is the story of the planet’s creation, and the story of us.

With intrepid explorer Carsten Peter, dodge boulders at the edge of an active volcano in Indonesia, descend to a lava lake in Vanuatu and visit the incredible mineral deposit fields in Ethiopia. Travel across the globe to see the archaeological ghost towns of Pompeii and witness the devastating effects of the recent Kilauea eruption in Hawaii. You’ll be on the edge of your seat as you discover molten worlds and exploding crates in this adrenaline-filled, immersive experience!

Narrated by Kristen Bell, Pandas is a heartwarming story about reintroducing pandas that were born in captivity, back into the wild.

At Chengdu Panda Base in China, scientists are taking the giant panda captive breeding program to the next level. This film follows a panda researcher, whose passion for their preservation leads her to initiate a new technique that is inspired by a black bear rehabilitator, in rural New Hampshire. What starts as a cross-cultural collaboration, becomes a life-changing journey for one special panda named Qian Qian. The film follows Qian Qian on an exciting new adventure into the mountains of Sichuan, as she experiences nature for the first time and discovers her wild side.
