BBC Earth's The Great
Salmon Run 4-D Experience

January 5 to February 28, 2015

This wild 4-D adventure is set on the beautiful coast of British Columbia and follows the Pacific salmon as they struggle to swim upstream. Hundreds of millions of Pacific salmon return to the mountain streams in which they were born. Their passage is fraught with danger – from raging rapids and waterfalls to hungry Grizzly bears. Other predators join the feast, including orcas, stellar sea lions, salmon sharks and the bald eagle. This captivating 12-minute show provides insight into the forces of nature, which drive a chain reaction culminating in a spectacular wildlife event. For some animals, it's a window of opportunity, but for others, it's the most dangerous time of their lives. 

Coming Soon:
