Wildlife Nation  >  Episode 16

Join host Jeff Corwin for a celebration of a few of North America’s most amazing birds and the conservation heroes fighting to save them. The adventure begins on the coastal cliffs of Central California where Jeff will witness wild California Condors soaring overhead. Next, we travel to the renowned Alaska Raptor Center to help a juvenile bald eagle return to the wild. Then, we travel to Jeff’s home state of Massachusetts to help save the salt marsh sparrow, a species only found in America. Finally, we’ll help veterinarians protect owls from harmful pesticides. Get ready for an amazing avian adventure like no other!
