Publisher's Summary

Join lauded marine biologist Dr. Sarika Cullis-Suzuki for an intimate tour of the wild heart of the nation. From the Tombstone Mountains of the Yukon Territory to the glowing grasslands of Saskatchewan, each episode is alive with the buzzes, warbles, and howls of Canadian wildlife. Cullis-Suzuki is your guide, painting a picture of the landscapes around you while letting you in on the wilderness stories unfolding. Curl up under the night sky in Newfoundland, and listen to a conversation between little brown bats as they leave their roost. Dip your toes in the Pacific Ocean while listening to the other-worldly humming of the plainfin midshipman (a toad fish). You’ll follow a pod of orcas, hear the crash of glaciers, and relax to the chorus of songbirds at dawn. It’s nature like you’ve never heard it before!

About the Narrator

Sarika is passionate about the ocean, a sustainable world, and the conservation of biodiversity. She has served on various boards and committees including at the David Suzuki Foundation, WWF Canada, and the Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea. Recently, she has been a visiting scientist at Ocean Networks Canada at the University of Victoria, BC.

Sarika’s marine research has taken her to many parts of the ocean, from the high seas to remote tropical islands to the coastal intertidal zones of her home, British Columbia. Her PhD investigated the effects of boat noise on fish, while her MSc focused on overfishing in the high seas, the results of which she presented to the United Nations.

Sarika is committed to speaking out about ocean issues and conservation, and works in environmentally-themed media: she has written for magazines, books and newspapers, worked in radio, and has hosted documentary films for Parks Canada, The National Film Board, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and Ocean Networks Canada. Most recently, she hosted two The Nature of Things episodes which aired in 2020: one on the fascinating world of intertidal zones, and one on the heartbreaking plight of orca. Sarika has been featured as Ms. Chatelaine, was named an influential Canadian Millennial by The Huffington Post Canada, and one of Canada’s Top 30 under 30 by Explore Magazine in 2012.

Wonderful sounds of Canada

I enjoyed the sounds of the boreal forests and the haunting whale songs. The narration was enlightening about the different regions of Canada.

Comments on Episode 5 Manitoba

Natural Symphony of wetlands from the heart of the continent. This was another lovely production, Congratulations. Near the beginning the narrator refers to Chorus Frogs. It should be Chorus and Wood Frogs, as the Wood Frog appears more often than the Chorus Frog. I really enjoyed the narration and the quality of the recordings. John Neville

Simply Incredible

This is the best thing I've listened to on audible. Period. Sometimes I was brought to tears with the beautiful sounds of animals and nature, and the way Sarika narrated the stories of these creatures. If you live in Canada this with touch your heart even more. I thoroughly recommend this.

beautiful sounds. wrong narrator

I was hoping this would be something nice and calming to listen to.
but once the narrator started talking, I was no longer relaxed. she has a nice voice, good for other reading. but not very soothing and kinda juts in.

Wonderful series with a gentle message

This is a wonderful series. It is well written, produced and narrated. Lots to learn as one travels from the Yukon east to Newfoundland and Labrador. The gentle message of climate change is presented in every episode without it being preachy. Just a reminder of the influences that we all have on our environment. Highly recommendable.

Not what I was expecting

I was under the impression that I would be lulled to sleep by natural sounds of the outdoors, this is not the case. It is a narrative of the province's flora and fauna over a recording of various sounds.
