Saving Wild Homes art competition

News-Archive

Entries are closing at the end of August 2022 for the Queensland Conservation Council’s second Saving Wild Homes art competition.

The competition is being run in support of the Queensland Conservation Council’s campaign, Double It for Nature. The campaign highlights the fact that Queensland has approximately half the percentage area that other states have gazetted as National Parks.

Last year’s competition showed that even very young children understood the importance of National Parks and the threats to wildlife if these areas are not expanded and protected.

Entries were gathered together in a book which was delivered to Meghan Scanlan, the Queensland Environment Minister. Entries were also displayed on World Environment Day at Pooh Corner Environment Centre in Wacol.

Find out more and submit your entry at the Queensland Conservation Council website.
