Introducing Wildlife Nation with Jeff Corwin, airing every weekend on ABC stations nationwide. 

Through the expertise of biologist and conservationist Jeff Corwin and Defenders of Wildlife, this weekly television series educates and empowers future generations to work together to preserve and protect the planet's most astounding wildlife and their natural habitats. 

Join host Jeff Corwin on an adventure to the great state of Alaska as he connects with the iconic North American brown bear. Jeff learns how people and bears coexist in Alaska and how we all share a common resource: salmon. Jeff travels into the Alaskan wilderness to observe brown bears up close and finds a mother bear with two cubs, a wild fox, and even watches bears hunt for salmon. Later, Jeff learns how the people of Alaska are managing the salmon across the state, ensuring this vital resource is sustainable for future generations.
