Alberta Naturally has been optimized for 640x480 resolution. All efforts have been made to minimize download time and to provide the widest accessibility - regardless of browser, platform or internet connection speed.

The audio clips require the use of the Real Networks RealPlayer, available free for download from their website: http://www.real.com.

The Natural Regions Flash Zone is a fun way to explore the Natural Regions through graphics and interaction! Within each region, click on a species to view text and information on the plant or animal, and then click on the camera to view a real-life photo! We recommend the Flash version for the best experience. The Macromedia Flash 4 or higher plugin is required, and can be downloaded for free from here.
