More About the Show

Greater Yellowstone is a place of extremes, and the wildlife must deal with one of the toughest springs on Earth. To understand how they cope, we follow a number of iconic wildlife families – including wolves, grizzlies, Great Gray Owls and beavers. Using the latest filming technology, the team of scientists and cameramen track the animals and analyze what’s going on. Host Kirk Johnson, the Sant Director of the National Museum of Natural History, heads the team.
