PETER IS CLOSING THE
TERRA MAGICA GALLERY
(Main Street Canmore location)
Yes, the rumors are true. I am about to close the doors of my beloved Terra Magica gallery downtown Canmore by the end of May (2013). The decision did not come easy and is the product of a long and profound soul-searching process.
Let me explain how I came to the decision and what the prospects are to continue my work as a voice for wildlife and the natural world in a time when the call of the wild becomes more and more silent day by day. Please read my full letter here and get to know the whole story behind this announcement and how the transition period will work, including special sales and events.
I would like to end this short announcement with an enormous thank you for all your support, kind messages and appreciation of my art throughout the last few years. There is lots more to come - this I can and will promise you - because it is a magical natural world worth fighting for! And thus in a way, the end, truly, becomes just the beginning...
A CLOSING SALE & CELEBRATION
Please join us to celebrate the years Peter, through the Terra Magica Gallery, showcased unsurpassed beauty, enhanced our personal connections with nature, and brought awareness to issues that threaten such A magical world...

A new journey begins:

Peter was visited last Friday by a CBC Radio-Canada crew and spent part of the afternoon with them in Banff National Park talking about his book "The Will of the Land". Although the book was published in 2010, the content is and will remain relevant for many years to come. For example: The slaughter of animals on the Mountain Parks roads and railways continues. In the last three years alone 1'102 animals the size of a wolverine or larger have been hit / killed by cars or locomotives in the Canadian Rocky Mountain National Parks, as research done by Peter and his Terra Magica team showcases.
In the meantime, many controversial projects, such as the construction of a Glacier Discovery Walk in Jasper National Park, have been approved and will further erode the noble idea of a strong conservation ethic inside our Canadian National parks. Peter used the opportunity to talk about his experiences with the Bow Valley wolves, grizzlies and also about the importance and meaning of national parks.
