Conservation Week Wairarapa Photo Competition

The theme of Conservation Week this year is ‘Take a Moment for Nature’. The great thing about nature is that it can be enjoyed at home or in your local neighborhood no matter what COVID-19 Alert Level it is – and research has shown health and wellbeing improves when we get outside.

So, Wairarapa get your cameras recording your precious moments outdoors this Conservation Week and be in to win some cool prizes, including:

Entering is easy. Check out our Facebook post and simply upload your photo (or video) with or without a comment (your image may speak for itself 😉).

Prizes will be awarded for entries that demonstrate a connection with nature – whether it’s discovering a bug, checking a trap, planting a tree or simply enjoying a walk with your family. Bonus prizes will be awarded for entries that amuse the judges!
