“Heart Of Turtle Island: The Niagara Escarpment” brings exquisite focus to the environmental treasures of the Niagara Escarpment UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, and to the diverse native and settler communities that thrive along its rugged, curving path. Like the Galapagos and the Serengeti, The Niagara Escarpment is designated as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. One of the world’s unique natural wonders, the Escarpment defines an area across Southern Ontario and Manitoulin Island. Its ecosystems support hundreds of at-risk species that coexist alongside the most densely populated and heavily developed region in Canada. Through Mark Zelinski’s images and stories of the land, wildlife and people of Indigenous and settler communities, viewers have the

  • Best escarpment locations to photograph and best times of day and season to visit.

  • Tips for shooting local wildlife, bird migration and wildlife locations. · Tips for shooting wildflowers, insects and macro photography.
