    Wild Bear Rescue TV Series

    In 2016 we started filming with Omnifilm Entertainment which is one of Canada’s leading independent content companies. For nearly forty years, Omnifilm has produced and distributed hundreds of hours of award-winning programming including drama, comedy, factual and lifestyle series, documentaries, and children’s programming. Omnifilm co-produces and partners regularly with both Canadian and international production companies and broadcasters.

    The TV series started on Animal Planet on June 23rd, 2017 with 12 episodes and was later also aired on Discovery Channel and Knowledge Network. The series follows cubs such as Nutmeg, Wasabi, Cassia and grizzly cub Shadow from arrival, through adaptation at NLWS. There is laughter and tears, the day to day reality for any rescue facility and they will capture your heart!

    We are grateful for the opportunity to share our work that is made possible by faithful supporters and volunteers. We hope that their stories will raise awareness and reduce many of the causes that lead to a wild animal being orphaned.
