THE National Geographic’s survival show Port Protection Alaska focuses on people who live and survive in isolation in the remote areas of Alaska.
Port Protection is a remote community tucked into the northwest corner of Prince of Wales Island, Alaska.
What is the show Port Protection Alaska about?
Port Protection Alaska profiles the lives of the community trying to survive in the freezing artic state of Alaska.
The approximately 100 residents who call the rugged, unforgiving land home push the limits of survival by hunting, fishing, trapping, growing their own food and building their own shelter.
The residents live in isolation and risk their lives with no roads, government or law enforcement.
“However, they think the risk is worth the profound reward: a world of beauty with the security of community without the constraints of bureaucracy,” National Geographic explains in the premise of the show.
What happened to Amanda on Port Protection?
After season two wrapped up in 2016, the franchise returned with a spin-off series Life Below Zero in 2018.
Port Protection Alaska finally return in 2020 with many changes to the cast.
One of those changes was the disappearance of fan-favorite Amanda Makar.
Amanda said her farewells at the end of season two, however fans were hopeful it wasn’t her final goodbye on the show.
During her run on the show, Amanda quickly became a fan favorite for being independent and strong.
Throughout the nine episodes she featured in, she managed to buy her own skip, and worked day and night to pay off her debts for it.
According to a NatGeo spokesperson, who didn’t mention Amanda by name, many resident moved away from Alaska in between filming and in between the show was halted.
However, just as fast people leave the small community is how quickly many more residents join the small town.
