Established in 1922, Wood Buffalo National Park in Northern Canada is one of the last places on earth where wolves and buffalo still live as they have for thousands of years. For the last 25 years, Jeff and Sue Turner, Canadian wildlife filmmakers, have been observing these fascinating animals.
With new, state-of-the-art camera technologies allowing him to get closer to the wolves than ever before, the Turners use traditional field craft and a deep understanding of wolf behaviour to intimately explore the hunting strategies and way of life of one family of wolves called the Delta Pack.
In the breathtaking vistas of the Peace and Athabasca River Delta, one of the largest inland deltas in the world, the Turners follows the wolf and buffalo migrations through the seasons. In The Buffalo Wolves, these incredible creatures are seen to have their own systems for survival, threatened only by humans.
