2011 Robert Bateman Get to Know Contest

Get to Know your Wild Neighbours!

This year, renowned wildlife artist Robert Bateman invites all Canadian youth to go outside and "get to know" their wild neighbours.  The Canadian Wildlife Federation Robert Bateman Get to Know Contest encourages young people to develop a deeper appreciation for their neighbours of other species by getting outdoors and creating art, writing, digital photography and videos.

2011 has been declared the International Year of Forests by the United Nations.  In celebration of this important designation, the theme of the 2011 Get to Know contest is "This is My Forest".

Winners will receive all kinds of wild prizes.  The contest launches during National Wildlife Week, April 10 - 16.  To learn more and find out how to enter, visit www.gettoknow.ca
