Calling all residents: Bournemouth Natural Science Society needs your wildlife snaps
A SOCIETY in Bournemouth is calling on residents to send in their favourite photos of wildlife taken within the town.
The Bournemouth Natural Science Society are running a photographic competition exclusively for people who live and work in Bournemouth, for pictures of flowers, plants, trees, animals, wildlife, or green space landscapes.
The three top submissions for each of the Best Flora, Best Fauna, and Best Green Space Landscape categories will then go on display at the society.
Heather Dixon, project officer for the Bournemouth Naturally project, is heading up the competition, which aims to celebrate the natural beauty of the town.
She said: “The aim is to get people who live locally to take an interest in the natural wildlife and green spaces in the town.
“We also want to get a feel for what people have seen in the area, and have perhaps kept on their camera until now.
“We also have a children’s category, so this is not just a competition for adults, and we find that sometimes people forget to take notice of what is around them.
“The Bournemouth Naturally project has been organised in partnership with Bournemouth Council.
“There are a variety of ways that people can enter, either by emailing in their photos, if they want to submit several we would ask that they do so on a CD, or people can post their prints.
“For both the children’s and adults’ competition, there is a Best Flora, Best Fauna, and Best Green Space Landscape category, which have gold, silver and bronze awards.”
