Wildlife Nation  >  Episode 24

Join host Jeff Corwin on an epic adventure from Florida to California to Alaska to better understand how climate change is impacting some of North America’s most iconic creatures. First, Jeff uncovers precious sea turtle nests on the beach of Boca Raton and discovers how warming beaches are affecting developing turtles inside the egg. Later, Jeff makes his way to California to understand how drought and habitat loss is impacting the giant garter snake. Then, Jeff makes his way to the remote wilderness of Alaska where bison and musk ox are adapting to the rapidly changing Alaska ecosystem.
