Overview


Wild Alberta: A Visual Celebration is a journey of discovery that invites Albertans and visitors to explore the wildlife heritage and natural wonders of the province's four eco-regions: boreal forest, aspen parkland, badlands, and mountains.

Despite the fact that Alberta is not as wild

as it once was, Lynch shows us that there is still much to celebrate, much to

discover, much to savour and admire, and much to protect for the future. It is

also a testament to the exceptional natural beauty and biological significance

of the province that, of the thirteen locations in Canada designated by UNESCO

as World Heritage Sites in recognition of their outstanding value to humanity,

five are found in Alberta: Banff/Jasper National Parks, Waterton National Park,

Wood Buffalo National Park, Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, and Dinosaur

Provincial Park.

Lavishly illustrated with exceptionally beautiful colour

photographs and sketches, Wild Alberta: A Visual Celebration describes

Alberta's magnificent landscapes, flora, and fauna. Throughout the text Lynch

also outlines some of the big changes - both success stories and areas of

concern - that have occurred in the wildlife populations of the province over

the last hundred years.

Recognized and respected as one of North America's leading wildlife and natural history photographers, Wayne Lynch has spent the last twenty-five years capturing images of wildlife in wild places the world over. His impressive photo credits include hundreds of magazine covers, thousands of calendar shots, and tens of thousands of imagespublished in over

two dozen countries. Lynch is also an award-winning science writer, a popular guest lecturer, and a veteran photo-safari leader. He has authored more than two dozen highly acclaimed natural history books including The Great Northern

Kingdom, Wild Birds Across the Prairies and Mountain Bears.

Wayne lives with his wife, author Aubrey Lang, in Calgary.
