PBS airing live nature special from Alaska
PBS is collaborating with the BBC on a special live event this summer where cameras will try to catch bears, wolves, eagles and other wildlife in their natural habitat in Alaska. “Wild Alaska Live” will air over three nights on PBS on July 23, 26 and 30. Cameras placed in the Tongass National Forest, the Kenai Fjords National Park, in Hallo Bay and other locations will hunt for wildlife as the show discusses how the state’s human population interacts with nature. The show is similar to “Big Blue Live,” a 2015 event focused on marine life in California’s Monterey Bay. That was another partnership with the BBC. Brothers Chris and Martin Kratt of the PBS Kids series “Wild Kratts” will host the event.
