    Directed, produced, written and edited by Kim MacQuarrie. "Kamchatka: Siberia's Forbidden Wilderness" is an Emmy-winning natural history film that follows the lives of a family of Grizzly Bears (a mother and three spring cubs) as they make a living on Russia's most remote Siberan outpost: the Kamchatka Peninsula in the far east of Russian Siberia. Part of the "Ring of Fire," the Kamchatka Peninsula has more than 300 volcanoes, twenty nine of which are active. It also has a high concentration of spectacular wildlife, including Grizzly Bears, Steller's Sea Eagles, Snow Sheep, Arctic Foxes an millions of Sockeye Salmon. Off of nearby Bering Island, 500-lb Northern Fur Seals dive to depths of 600 feet and gather on giant, deafening rookeries where males fight it out for territories and access to females. Tufted Puffins nest in the millions while Arctic Foxes patrol the seal rookeries, looking for unwary seal pups. Likened to Alaska as Alaska was one hundred years ago, Kamchatka hosts some of the most spectacular wildlife displays on Earth and is truly a Siberian Eden.
