2010 ID ChallengeMy goal with the monthly contest is to provide a fun way to encourage others to learn more about nature and wildlife. When we start looking more closely at the natural world around us, we realize how vast and fascinating it is. I firmly believe that the more we learn about plants and animals, habitats and ecosystems – the more we want to protect them. This contest is also a great way for participants to win a donation for their favorite conservation/nature/wildlife charity or non-profit organization.
