Pukaskwa National Park protects 1878 square kilometres of an ecosystem featuring boreal forest and Lake Superior shoreline. Yet, the entire park has only two kilometres of road inside its boundaries. So, the producer and videographer from OASIS HD endured boat and helicopter rides (we don’t think they minded these hardships) and spent several nights in remote locations during their intensive week of filming last June.

It was worth it though! The finished episode provides viewers with a behind-the-scenes look at the monitoring and research done by Parks Canada to help ensure the protection and presentation of Pukaskwa’s priceless natural and cultural treasures.
