Author, filmmaker and television host
Chris Fisher is best known as the author of a series of books, including “Birds of Alberta,” which is one of the most successful made-in-Alberta books in our province's publishing history. He is regarded as a leading influencer for all things nature and is a frequent voice in Alberta media for wildlife and conservation stories. Chris has written and hosted television shows, documentary films and environmental education materials. He has guided adventure seekers and wildlife enthusiasts to all seven continents and shared first-hand some of our most extraordinary natural experiences. Currently, he works as a consultant on development projects to ensure that we move forward as a society without bringing harm to the things we value in the natural world.
Chris lived in Edmonton for over 20 years, where he attended the University of Alberta and achieved many of his career successes. Our community has been formative throughout his life and it gives Chris great pleasure to return and renew friendships and to re-engage with Edmonton's empowering conservation culture.
