Joe: "During this time we were based off a boat anchored in the bay. The skiff has to pick us up at high tide, and with enough light or we would be stranded. But it's always difficult to leave, because you never know what might happen next, especially with bears around. You can wait for hours and nothing will happen, and then in an instant, everything will change. It's one of the things that makes filming wildlife so addictive. Its better then any extreme sport I know, because when your heart is pounding, you know you've got something that will stay with you long after the event is over."Nature joins adventurer and bear biologist Chris Morgan and filmmaker Joe Pontecorvo on a year-long motorcycle odyssey deep into Alaska's bear country to explore the amazing resiliency and adaptability of these majestic animals as they struggle to make a living in five dramatically diverse Alaskan ecosystems: coastal, urban, mountain, tundra, and pack ice."Bears of the Last Frontier" premieres on PBS Sunday, May 8, 2011 at 8pm and is part of the 29th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen in association with WNET.ORG for PBS.
