Orange Beach Wildlife Calendar Photo Contest accepting submissions

Posted

Have you even wanted to see one of your photographs in a calendar? Do you enjoy photographing the local wildlife? The Orange Beach Wildlife Center is holding its annual Wildlife Calendar Photo Contest.

Amateur photographers are encouraged to enter unedited photographs of local and native wildlife. Each photographer may submit up to five original photographs for consideration. Entries must be submitted by email no later than May 17 to Melissa Vinson, Coastal Programs Coordinator at mvinson@orangebeachal.gov. Winning photos will be featured in the 2022 Wildlife Calendar.

The Orange Beach Wildlife Center and Management Program’s mission is the protection and preservation of wildlife through management, rescue, rehabilitation and education. The center has resident animal ambassadors that are used to teach visitors and school children about the local wildlife. The staff and interns rescue, treat and release injured animals. Recently, a report of a sea turtle acting lethargic came in. The young green sea turtle was caught and transported to the Gulfarium CARE Center for treatment. The turtle had several open wounds and a cut to its intestine. Wildlife in distress calls are received often and the staff does everything possible to treat and release.

Proceeds from the sale of the annual Wildlife Calendar go to support the Orange Beach Wildlife Center and its programs.
