Celebrate Earth Day with BBC #Giveaway

For more than fifty years, BBC Earth has been capturing audiences with the natural world. With ground breaking series like Blue Planet and Planet Earth, they have brought the beauty and wonders of Earth right into our living rooms. In March 2012 BBC introduced Frozen Planet, which showed us the frozen wildernesses of the Arctic and Antarctic and gave us an up close look at fascinating polar animals like penguins and polar bears.


"Encounter spectacles that few of us will ever witness as the camera team goes deep under the sea-ice into a magical world of giants, plunge into the heart of an erupting polar volcano and fly to the South Pole across the Antarctic icecap, the largest concentration of ice on our planet, retracing the steps of the great polar explorers."


Just in time for Earth Day, Frozen Planet will be released on Blu-Ray and DVD tomorrow, April 17. This is a great series to bring home and watch as a family, especially if your kids love nature and animals as much as mine do! Every Friday night is pizza night in our house followed by watching a movie together as a family. So this Friday we will be popping some organic popcorn and sitting down together to enjoy Frozen Planet.

The Ultimate Polar Bear Adventure Sweepstakes
Ahead of the April 17 release of Frozen Planet, BBC launched the The Ultimate Polar Bear Adventure Sweepstakes where two pairs of winners (one in the US and one in Canada) will receive a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to observe these magnificent, endangered polar bears up close as well as discover the rich human and natural history of Manitoba, Canada.


This amazing six-day adventure includes:
  • Round trip airfare to Winnipeg, Manitoba 
  • Private charter flights between Manitoba and Churchill
  • Local sightseeing and two full-day excursions deep into polar bear country
  • A private cocktail party and dinner at the Manitoba Museum
  • A storytelling session with a First Nation resident
  • A dog sledding demonstration 
  • And so much more!
This trip sounds so awesome, I have already entered myself!
