Wild for wildlife photos!

Calling all of Castanets many talented nature photographers!

The BC SPCA wants your wildlife photos for their 11th annual Wildlife-In-Focus photography contest. Amateur photographers 14 years and older can submit their awe-inspiring images until Aug. 31.
 
“Wildlife-In-Focus is a celebration of the incredible diversity of wild animals that live in B.C.,” says BC SPCA specialist, research communications Erin Ryan. “Every year we receive amazing entries featuring graceful deer, red foxes playing in the forest and bears catching salmon on the river with mountains in the background.”
 
The top 52 photos will be featured on a deck of playing cards, “every deck of cards sold and all photo entry donations support the BC SPCA’s Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre (Wild ARC), which cares for more than 2,800 orphaned and injured wildlife every year,” Ryan says.

Prizes will be awarded for the top three photos, as determined by the judges in each of two categories: Wild Settings and Backyard Habitats.
 
All photos of wildlife entered must be taken within B.C. and submitted digitally. “Wildlife” includes free-living birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish and insects, but not exotic, feral or domestic animals, or wildlife in zoos or rehabilitation facilities.

In 2018, Wildlife-In-Focus raised $17,586 which was used for food, veterinary care, blankets and other supplies to support the rehabilitation of wild animals at Wild ARC.
