A pristine wilderness area the size of France now stands on the brink of irreversible change. The Barren's Quest explores the environmental impact of mineral development on Canada's Northwest Territories through the moving story of one man's determined quest to locate the fabled breeding grounds of a near extinct bird - the Eskimo Curlew. This bird once flew in the millions and was the second most numerous game bird in all the Americas.

The video looks into the complex changes facing the North, and makes a moving and compelling case for planned conservation in one of the last unspoiled wilderness regions of the world.
