May 22, 2011 Bay of Fundy

Bay of Fundy

The Bay of Fundy is home to the highest tides in the world. Twice daily a volume of water equal to the flow of all the rivers on the planet enters the Bay. The tides rise 12 to 16 meters - 40 to 50 feet high but it is not only the awesome physical power of the Fundy tides. It's their ability to support the magnificent whales, fascinating seabirds and shorebirds and the rest of the marine life. The Bay is truly one of the natural wonders of the world.

There's no one better to guide us than author and naturalist Harry Thurston. He grew up close to the Bay - he's even written a book about it.
