Grizzlies of Kamchatka

Grizzlies of Kamchatka profiles an extraordinary interaction between humans and the world's largest concentration of grizzly bears in remote Russia. Parallax Film Productions follows Charlie Russell and Maureen Enns as they study the Kamchatka Grizzlies of the Far East.

Charlie and Maureen raise 3 orphaned grizzly cubs (Chico, Biscuit and Rosie) and reintroduce them to the wild as part of an attempt to research human coexistence with bears. It’s an unparalleled journey of discovery in the remote wilderness.

The Kamchatka Peninsula lies between the Sea of Okhotsk on the west and the Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea on the east. It is about 1,200 kilometres long north-south and about 480 kilometres across at its widest. Two mountain ranges, the Sredinny and Vostochny, extend along the peninsula.
