SCIENCE CHANNEL'S MANTRACKER PUSHES LIMITS OF WEEKEND WARRIORS IN A STRUGGLE OF INSTINCTS AND WITS

-- New Series Premieres Wednesday, March 4, 2009 at 10 PM --

(Silver Spring, Md.) � Imagine being dropped in the seemingly infinite, extremely rough Canadian terrain with little more than water, a compass and your survival instincts. Now, imagine being pursued on horseback by a gritty, veteran outdoorsman trained in tracking and retrieving missing persons in the deep wilderness. And his only goal is to track and capture you. Science Channel viewers will be introduced to two weekend warriors who volunteer to meet this physically and mentally exhausting contest each week in the new series MANTRACKER premiering Wednesday, March 4 at 10 PM (ET/PT).

In each episode two challengers have 36 hours to reach a destination more than 22 miles away. Not only do they battle the deep woods, rugged rock faces and raging rivers of Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario or the Yukon, but they must also outwit an unflappable MANTRACKER who is using a horse, his instincts and his deep knowledge of search and rescue to capture the two before they reach the finish line.

Driven by adrenaline and a deep desire to win, do the challengers have what it takes to endure the Canadian backcountry and beat MANTRACKER at his own game? Or will an experienced, proud man driven by protecting his reputation make escape impossible? MANTRACKER airs regularly Wednesdays at 10 PM (ET/PT).

Terry Grant is MANTRACKER, a steely-eyed cowboy with 25 years experience on a Canadian ranch and a trained volunteered with the Search and Rescue Association of Alberta for 13 years. Search and Rescue Alberta (SAR Alberta) is a nonprofit society dedicated to improving search and rescue operations in the Province of Alberta, enhancing search and Rescue civil emergency response, and promoting outdoor safety in Alberta.

MANTRACKER is produced by Bonterra Productions. Ihor Macijiwskyn is executive producer for Bonterra Productions.
