Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
Originally shown on the PBS program Nature, Living Edens: Big Sur is a documentary about California's wild coastline region. Narrated by Sally Kellerman and photographed by Bruce Reitherman, this program features the wild animals and plant life that lives in Big Sur, constituting the 100 miles of coastland beneath the Monterey Peninsula. On-location footage explores the mating and feeding habits of endangered birds, ocean mammals, and inland forest creatures. Big Sur is home to rare species of animals, like the California condor, the elephant seal, and the acorn woodpecker. This PBS presentation is effective for high school classroom use in science, language arts, and geography.
