DISCOVERY'S "DUAL SURVIVAL" RETURNS THIS APRIL, BRINGING BACK TWO VASTLY DIFFERENT SURVIVAL EXPERTS TO BRAVE THE WILDERNESS TOGETHER

Cody Lundin and Dave Canterbury - survival experts with drastically different backgrounds - once again join forces to survive in some of the world's toughest environments when DUAL SURVIVAL returns to Discovery on Fridays at 9PM ET/PT beginning April 22. In the ultimate test of skill, perseverance and creativity, military-trained Canterbury and naturalist Lundin battle the elements - and sometimes each other - to show what it takes to survive, using only minimal gear and what they can find in their surroundings.

Through 12 all-new episodes, the duo endures survival scenarios that push them to their limits: black powder hunters stranded in Tierra Del Fuego, off road bikers stuck in the middle of Baja or cattle ranchers on the Montana prairie in winter. Canterbury and Lundin must draw upon their personal arsenal of skills to devise extraordinary, MacGyver-like ways to survive. How will they use a plastic bag, lip balm and a parachute cord while trenching through waist-deep snow in the Rocky Mountains? Or a broken cell phone, steel wool and elephant dung in the jungles of Thailand?

From swamps to avalanches and sweltering heat to sub-zero temperatures, this season Cody and Dave will show what it takes to survive in: the Florida Everglades, made up of 4,000 miles of cypress swamp; the scorching deserts of Baja, Mexico; Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina - less than 500 miles from Antarctica; the wet cloud forests of Panama, 7,000 feet in the air; and Wyoming's Rocky Mountains in the dead of winter.

Cody Lundin - a 20 year survival veteran and best-selling author who honed his skills living in the desert with very little tools, equipment or assistance - teaches minimalist self-reliance through his Aboriginal Living Skills School in Arizona. He spent two years living in a brush shelter in the woods where he slept on pine needles and cooked over an open fire. Today, Lundin lives off the grid in a self-designed solar earth home in the wilderness of northern Arizona where he catches rain, composts waste and pays nothing for heating and cooling. And he has been going barefoot for more than 20 years, part of his indigenous survival strategy.

Dave Canterbury joined the U.S. Army at age 17, eventually becoming a Special Reaction Team (SRT) instructor and sniper. He trained soldiers in the U.S., Central America and Korea in unarmed combat and close-quarter techniques. After leaving the Army, Canterbury worked on a reptile farm and as a commercial fisherman and diver in the Florida saltwater marshes. He put his background, skills and training to work for the next phase of his career - learning and now teaching wilderness survival at his Pathfinder Training School in Southeast Ohio.

DUAL SURVIVAL is produced for Discovery Channel by Original Media, where Charlie Corwin, Jay Peterson and Brian Lovett are executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Christo Doyle is executive producer.
