Andrew it has been awhile – So very proud of your continued work. Writing to you from Moose Jaw. The birds are alive in Saskatchewan! Yellow headed black birds break the continued silence as the prairie dogs do their thing. Hope all is well… Ron Smid
Excellent place to be this time of year, Ron. Are you still shooting film? Great to hear from you..
Dear Mr. Manske: I teach healthcare professionals about breastfeeding. Your video “Polar Bear Love” would be PERFECT to show in class to illustrate the importance of relationship. It would also get people to experience some emotion, and change the energy of the presentation for a moment, making subsequent learning easier.
May I have a copy of that short clip to embed in a PowerPoint presentation? I would not give it to anyone.

I sincerely appreciate your efforts to create awareness to such a vital topic. I’m traveling right now and I don’t have access to the video you’d like to use.
I’m back in the office after Oct. 20th and perhaps I can send you a link to use then.
Is there anything else you need to demonstrate the importance of breast feeding? I think it is so important and if there is anything I can do to assist, with natural history footage, please let me know. I have scenes of other animals nursing as well.
Andrew, I know I have been out of the business for a while but I wanted to say a great big congrats for your well deserved Emmy award. You’ve been slogging it in the wilderness for as long as I’ve known you and I’m really glad to see it has paid dividends for you. Keep up the great work buddy.
Thanks Jim- Much appreciated! As Albert Karvonen once said…”if it was easy, everyone would be doing it!” So very true. Stay well!
Andrew hi! I would really love to have the photos of Sonia’s birthday party to show the family on Saturday! Is there any way you can get some to me? Really enjoyed meeting you and hope your journey home was OK.
Sorry I didn’t have an email for you!
Just got this. Will send you media today!
Andrew: My wife and I would like to put up a wildlife cam along a snowshoe route we frequent to see who is sharing our winter trail with us. Would you have a recommendation for a unit? There are many, many cams on the market and we don’t know where to start.
Bushnell makes decent 1080p HD video trail cameras. Make sure to use lithium double ‘A’ batteries!
Dear Mr Manske
I liked the audio recording you did of ‘Barred owl’. We are making a film in which I would like to use couple of owl hoots. Is it possible to get your permission for the same?
Yes, feel free to use the sound. It would be great if you could provide a credit for the use. Thanks!
Andrew– I have gone over some of the earlier footage of yours in the Mackenzie Bison Sanctuary and think it is some of the very best that was accomplished with the resources that you had available at the time.
Thought you had moved to Florida years ago. I went out with you several years ago-trying to capture snowy owls. Didn’t get a snowy, but get great shots of the great greys.

It was awesome when Andrew came to our school today he is really awesome
Hi Andrew, I just read about the wolverine documentary on the cbc website. Wish I were in Canada so I could see it. Looks like it was quite the epic undertaking! Thanks again for putting my sheep research in the spotlight all those years ago! John Loehr
Do you license clips?
Saw your presentation today in Jasper. Truly amazing!!! Love the work you’re doing!
Thanks Jan! Enjoy the Canadian Rockies!
Hi. I’ve been three feet from a Wolverine and I know where some live. Have a happy new year.
Wolverines are super cool!
today I saw you video on youtube about polar bear I like it very much and your work is awesome. with your permission and if you like can i use this video in my youtube channel? url is given below. Thank you.
Hello Shariq, thank you for your request about my polar bear love video. Unfortunately I cannot give you permission to post the video to your channel. You can share my link if you’d like. But please don’t download and post it to your site. Thank you. Andrew
I’m afraid I am not able permit use of the polar bear footage on my YouTube channel. But thinks for your interest!
I would like to know how the wolverines got to have the gos collars removed?
Good show but that should be included in the video.
The collars naturally fall off the wolverines after 6 months and are retrieved by the researchers using telemetry.
Are you mainly self taught with the camera or do you recommend a type of course/schooling for film making for nature seems.
Hi Emma, I studied film production many years ago. I recommend going to film school. Montana State has a great wildlife film programme. http://sfp.montana.edu/sciencenaturefilm/. Best, Andrew
