America´s Arctic

A Refuge Imperiled

The coastal plain on the northern coast of Alaska is a unique place. For millennia it has been the summer home for huge herds of caribou and countless migratory birds. The area supports a greater variety of plant and animal life than any other protected area in the Arctic Circle. This is the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

This film shows the splendor, enormous scope and indescribable beauty of this untouched land far to the north of Alaska, one of the last havens for caribou herds and polar bears. Shot over a period of four years this film offers a unique insight in the lives of the most charismatic arctic animals. Outstanding aerial photography captures the scope and epic dimensions of the annual caribou migration, revealing the many dangers the herds encounter on the way. Awe-inspiring footage shows how wolves and grizzlies strategically stalk and attack the herds.

"Many of you know I’ve been working on this project to document to Arctic Refuge with the Campion Foundation for the last five years. This winter we partnered with Terra Mater to bring out a wonderful film on the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, a place that has been fought over for the last many decades. When doing the film work to document the refuge it was important to me to convey a sense of place of this incredible land and to show the animals as part of the environment."
