Kanopy Pick for April

Few things seem quite as magical as spotting a white-tailed deer in one of Toronto’s natural areas. In this month’s Kanopy pick, “The Secret Life of Whitetails,” filmmaker Gary W. Griffen gives an intimate introduction to this wonderful animal, its evolution, range, and resilience. A classic nature documentary made remarkable by behavioral footage accumulated over three years of filming. Run time: 57 minutes. (Note: May stream with introductory colour bars. These will pass in under a minute.)

The Toronto Field Naturalists wish to acknowledge this land through which we walk. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississauga of the Credit River. Today it is still the home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to be on this land.
