Wildlife Footage from Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary

This video is the product of a year-and-a-half of filming the wildlife of Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary by remote wildlife cameras next to the beautiful beaver pond, wetland, and woods of Summer Star for its founder and manager, Shalin Liu. Sally Naser and Pete Westover set up and monitored the cameras, and Tim and Sam Westover edited the production. Shalin Liu announced the release of the video at Summer Star’s 8th anniversary celebration on September 20, 2022. Conservation Works would be glad to create and produce similar videos of special places for land trusts and other conservation organizations.”
