Follow the perilous parenthood of two species â€” white gyrfalcons and Arctic wolves â€” on Canada’s remote Ellesmere Island. NATURE White Falcon, White Wolf, airing Wednesday, August 1, 2012 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 11/cable 1011), captures both the beauty and finely balanced world of Ellesmere Island and the importance of timing for all of its inhabitants. In the Canadian Arctic, winter arrives in September and stays for nine cold and dark months. A pair of snowy white gyrfalcons and a pack of Arctic wolves must work hard to raise their families during the brief respite the sun provides.
