“This series is as much about the adventure to get the shot as it is about the shot itself,” Gregory said in a statement. “I’m taking viewers into the wild and getting up close and personal with Canada’s sexiest coastal predators. The camera is always rolling. It’s raw. It’s real. It’s intimate. And I’m excited to be a part of Nat Geo Wild’s first venture into the digital space.”

Geoff Daniels, executive VP and general manager of Nat Geo Wild, added: “We are thrilled to extend the Wild brand beyond television to reach our audiences wherever they are. Bertie is a great ambassador for us, and his adventures in this new series will be celebrated across National Geographic’s many platforms, including Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Nat Geo Live! and more.”
