The Big Wild
I assumed that waterways and wilderness areas were recognized by all as being critically important - MEC and others have pointed out that a very small proportion of land is protected. Here in Newfoundland significant tracts of land are restricted on the Avalon close to the East Coast trail, national and provincial parks are protected as are sections of wilderness and recently Torngats and Mealy Mountains have been recognized by Parks Canada. Access to wilderness sections on the east coast require permits to canoe and hike.
Todd Macfie is one of the hosts you might remember a couple of years ago who made Across Asgaard. A combination of humour and outdoor adventure make for a great way to document unique areas.
The north west coast of Newfoundland is on my list for a summer trip.
