The National Wildlife Refuge Association announces the 2008 Refuge Photo Contest – a digital photo contest to showcase America’s national wildlife refuges.


The National Wildlife Refuge System has no equal when it comes to conserving our nation’s rich wildlife heritage. The over 545 refuges are home to more than 700 bird species, 220 mammal species, 250 reptile and amphibian species, and over 200 species of fish. Such a diverse array of wildlife means that the Refuge System contains both rare and common types of habitat — everything from southwest desert to arctic tundra. For 40 million visitors each year, refuges provide a welcome retreat to natural surroundings. That’s why we are pleased to conduct this exciting national wildlife refuge digital photo contest.

Images can be of birds, mammals, insects, fish, other animals, plants, people, or refuge scenery, in short, almost any sight at a national wildlife refuge can be submitted for this contest.
