Kids Reflect on Conservation in Pakistan Poster Contest
Vote for your favorite poster promoting wildlife conservation in Pakistan!
Pakistan is home to a stunningly diverse fauna, with iconic species including the snow leopard, markhor, urial, cheetah, indus dolphin, crocodile, and brown bear.
To help protect this natural heritage, our Pakistani partner organization, Snow Leopard Foundation, has joined hands with the Pakistan Museum of Natural History (PMNH), the English Access Program, and the U.S. Embassy to run a country-wide poster contest among youth on ‘Why conserving wildlife in my community is important.’
The top posters were sent to the capital city, Islamabad, where a jury of experts evaluated the posters and selected four finalists for an online voting. All three posters will be printed in large quantities for circulation in schools to promote awareness on wildlife issues.
The artists who created them will receive prices at an award ceremony on World Wildlife Day, March 3rd, at the Pakistan Museum of Natural History in Islamabad, with the Federal Secretary of the Ministry of Science and Technology, Mr Kamran Ali Qureshi, doing the honors.
