It is time for another Challenge for Charity contest, where you can play to win a donation to your favorite nature/conservation/wildlife non-profit organization. All photos were taken in the previous month, and the location is always listed. The first person to get the most correct answers will win a $10 donation in their name. If the winner also answers the Bonus question correctly, the prize is a $15 donation. This month’s contest will run through October 24th. Good Luck!
