The Canadian Wildlife Federation is making available 150 limited edition numbered and autographed prints of wildlife photography taken and donated by Rush bassist Geddy Lee.
CWF’s “RUSH of Nature” initiative gives RUSH fans an opportunity to share in Lee’s love of wildlife photography while helping support CWF’s wildlife conservation programs across the country. The 150 prints will each sell for $150 as part of CWF’s Canada 150 celebration designed to encourage Canadians to #ConserveTheWonder.
“We are extremely thankful that Geddy is as adept with a camera as he is with his bass,” said Shauna Pichosky, CWF Director of Marketing. “A print Geddy offered us in 2016 sold out in three hours. RUSH fans are loyal and when a member of the band aligns with a cause fans know it’s a worthy one. This initiative gives fans an opportunity to get Geddy’s autograph on a unique creation from the artist.”
The new photograph was taken during Lee’s trip to South Africa earlier this year and the stunning numbered prints are expected to sell just as quickly.
“I spent the month of February exploring different parts of the Western Cape,” said Lee. “While waiting under a tree in between rain showers we were able to follow and capture this fantastic Orange Breasted Sunbird who was resting amongst the beautiful and endemic Fynbos growths.”
The prints go on sale July 29th at midnight eastern time through the CWF their online store ShopCWF which is also Geddy’s birthday.
