The Bay of Fundy giant tide never rests, but as days get shorter and cooler the dynamics change. The feeding frenzy is over. The feast is complete. Inhabitants have overindulged. Now its October mobile inhabitants can either overwinter or migrate. Less active inhabitants must adapt to survive the oncoming cold. Join us as we explore this unique Canadian environment by boat and foot to find out who will ‘stay’ and who will ‘go’.
