The unique survival strategies of cold-weather animals are in the spotlight in this PBS Nature special, Snowbound: Animals of Winter.

Nature taps wildlife cameraman Gordon Buchanan to host the special, which looks at how animals, including the Arctic fox, reindeer, polar bear, penguin, and woolly bear caterpillar, among others, survive some of the harshest conditions on the planet.

Nature’s Fred Kaufman serves as executive producer.

“What we think are unbearable, harsh conditions are actually enjoyed by some animals that live in the intense cold. If only I could handle the New York winters as well as big cats handle Siberia,” said Kaufman to realscreen in an e-mail.

Snowbound: Animals of Winter premieres Jan. 11 at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. ET on PBS.

Snowbound: Animals of Winter is a co-production of Thirteen Productions and BBC in association with WNET.
