Canon has announced the Nurture Nature Awards, which is “an environmental program that encourages Canadians to help protect or improve the natural habitat of an endangered or threatened species in their community.”
They will be accepting applications online (from now until September 1st) containing your written plan on how to positively impact a threatened habitat in your area. Enter online by submitting a video, outlining your proposed plan along with a short written outline.
Three winners from across the country will be chosen in September and receive $20,000 to see their proposal come to fruition. They’ll also get decked out with a digital SLR from Canon as well as a video camera so they can document their projects.
Now is a great time to think about what you would do for your local ecosystem as we’re in the middle of Canadian Environment Week. This includes tomorrow’s Clean Air Day, the Commuter Challenge, and Friday’s World Environment Day.
