Bannick to speak at virtual KLT event

| January 30, 2021 1:00 AM

SANDPOINT – Kaniksu Land Trust is welcoming award-winning wildlife photographer, author, and speaker, Paul Bannick for a special virtual event. On Tuesday, Feb. 16, at 7 p.m.,

Bannick will present photos and experiences from his recently released book, “Snowy Owl – A Visual Natural History.” 

Paul has authored two best-selling bird books and his work has been published in such publications as The New York Times, Audubon, Birds and Blooms, Sunset, and many others. He has appeared on NBC Nightly News and dozens of NPR stations and programs. His work can be found in the Audubon, Peterson, The Smithsonian, and National Wildlife Federation bird guides. His photography has won a host of awards from prestigious national and international photography contests.

“If your average picture is worth a thousand words, a Paul Bannick wildlife photograph is worth 20,000. Having worked with wildlife photographers for articles in Audubon, Smithsonian, Sierra, National Wildlife and other magazines for 45 years, I have yet to encounter one who better captures the magic and beauty of the natural world. I was absolutely blown away by his two recent books — 'Snowy Owl' and 'Great Gray Owl'. No tame, game-farm birds in these spectacular collections or in any of Bannick’s work. He immerses himself in the wild and brings his viewers and readers along with him. Little wonder that he is a multiple award winner,” said Ted Williams, award-winning wildlife journalist and former editor of Audubon Magazine

Bannick is passionate about conservation and serves as the director of major gifts for Conservation Northwest, an organization dedicated to protecting and connecting wild areas and recovering native species from the Pacific Coast to the Canadian Rockies.

"I strive to capture images that motivate conservation and partner with Organizations such as the Kaniksu Land Trust that also prioritize wild-lands and wildlife," Bannick said. 

Tickets are $5 and can be purchased online at The presentation takes place via Zoom. The link to access the online event will be provided at the time of purchase.
