Rick Andrews is a conservation wildlife photographer & film maker from Southern Alberta.  
His work connects people with wildlife while promoting the importance of protecting 
& restoring our natural world for future generations.  

Avian Summer is available ONLINE for digital rental or download:

Proceeds will benefit the Helen Schuler Nature Centre's Growing the Grassroots Endowment Fund.
