Survival in the wild

One month, just with a knife

The last wilderness in Europe is disappearing rapidly. Time to set an example:

Bernd Pfleger, biologist and wilderness guide, reports on the hardest time of his life - his survival trip to the Poloniny National Park, Slovakia / Poland. The goal: to survive a month in the wilderness of the Carpathian Mountains. The equipment: a knife, a set of clothes on your body, seven camera batteries, one conviction! No sleeping bag, no lighter, no tent, ... The food: water, plants and insects. To draw attention to the dramatic disappearance of the wild in Eastern Europe!

How does it feel to lose 17 kilograms or to lie in a pitch-dark and cold pile of leaves for 36 hours? What does it take to survive outside? And what does it take to be happy?

Hear his incredible stories, videos and diary entries, his fight for fire, his encounters with wild animals, and his reports of unscrupulous deforestation in the national park. How long did he make it?
