Stay At Home Devon Wildlife Trust Competition
Here at John Fowler Holidays we understand that finding things to do during lockdown can be difficult, however we have recently spotted a fun competition launched by the Devon Wildlife Trust. In this fantastic competition, the Devon Wildlife Trust is encouraging people to photograph ‘Wildlife at Home’.
If you live in Exeter, close to our Devon holiday parks, you could be in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes. Exeter City Council has partnered up with Devon Wildlife Trust to see what wildlife people have in their gardens or backyards across the city.
Cllr Duncan Wood, Lead Councillor for Leisure and Physical Activity, said: “Nature is proven to be good for mental wellbeing and we know what everyone is going through during these difficult times.
“Just getting out in the garden and experiencing wildlife on your doorstep can have such a positive effect on people and that’s why we’re excited with the prospect of seeing people’s photographs,” he added.
Images can be of birds on bird tables, crocuses, daffodils or snowdrops rising from the soil as Spring arrives, or butterflies, ladybirds, bees- the choice is endless.
Pictures must be taken at home (a maximum of two entries per person) – in the garden, backyard or even of a spider inside the house. They must be taken in Exeter and the competition is open to amateur photographers only, not professionals. There will be an adult competition and a junior category for those under the age of 14.
