About the Book
Over 20 million hectares of wetlands across Canada have been lost due to agriculture, harbour facilities, manufacturing plants, garbage dumps, warehouses, roads, airports, residential development, hydroelectric generation, utility rights of ways and shopping centers. Increasing pressures for dredging, draining and filling of wetlands continue to occur. Understanding and preserving these wetlands is as important for our future as it is to Canadian Wildlife. This book has over 200 photos on 160 pages, all in full color. Refuge areas include The George C. Reifel Waterfowl Refuge in Ladner BC, the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area, and The Sackville and Tintamarre National Wildlife Area, New Brunswick

Hi. I'm Larry Christopher. I am 66 years old, and have been taking pictures most of my life. I come from a family of photographers, both my Dad and my brother having great influence on me. I live in fabulous Surrey, British Columbia where one learns to take pictures outdoors even on rainy days. Members of my family include my mother Alice, my son and his wife Rob and Liz, and my dayghter Teresa. Thanks to them I also have two wonderful grandchildren Aidan and Adam, and a good friend Desirae. My wife Carol has been a great help and partner to me since 1965. I use Leica amd Nikon equipment, I no longer use film as much, but I will continue to use it for as long as it (and I) last. Long live the crow. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
