This documentary is the story of Timothy Treadwell, who
has lived peacefully with wild Alaskan grizzlies since the 1980s. Author of the book
Among Grizzlies, Mr. Treadwell immerses himself among these fascinating animals from
late spring to autumn. During March of each year, he ventures to the icy waters off
Eastern Canada with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to protect harp seals. When not
living with wild animals, Treadwell tours the world on an educational campaign to preserve
nature and life on earth.
(Footnote: In October 2003 Treadwell was mauled to death by a bear.)
