Aug 25, 2013 Archival Special -- The Avalon Herd

Archival Special -- The Avalon Herd

In the late '50's, few people would have put much faith in the survival of the Avalon caribou herd. At one point it was down to less than 100 animals.

But local wildlife officer Mike Nolan had faith...and was key to pulling the herd back from the brink of extinction.  Mike's job was to protect the herd, and it was a job he took very seriously.

In this archival special filmed back in 1980, former Land and Sea host Dave Quinton tells  Mike's story...and the story of the Avalon herd.
