At a Glance

From polar bears, caribou and grizzlies to bowhead whales, microscopic zooplankton and phytoplankton, let’s go on a wildlife adventure in the Arctic, Subarctic and Temperate Rainforest regions of Alaska! Alaska is 20% of the land mass of the United States, and its location on top of North America provides a unique environment for astonishing species of wildlife. In the final segment of this three-part series in getting to know wildlife in Alaska, the focus will be on the Temperate Rainforest in Southeast Alaska — renowned for its migrating marine mammals and birds. Join expert Jerri Roberts for an examination of the ecosystem, and learn to appreciate why it’s such a rich sanctuary for wildlife.
