For the third year in a row, the Endangered Species Coalition is holding a nationwide, all-ages chalk art event in honor of Endangered Species Day!
More than 1 million species globally are threatened with extinction. Art is one of the most powerful tools we have to draw attention to this crisis. That’s why we’re holding the Endangered Species Chalk Art Event again!
From Friday, May 19th through Sunday, May 21st, we’re inviting people around the world to create chalk art depicting threatened, endangered, or vanishing species. Not only is this a great way to celebrate wildlife, but you can also win prizes! More than $400 in prize money and chocolate bars will be given away in awards for the best artwork and at random to lucky participants.
To enter the contest and be eligible to win a prize, all you have to do is post a photo of your chalk art on Instagram between May 19th and May 21st. If you include #EndangeredSpeciesChalkArt and tag @endangeredspeciescoalition in your post, we’ll include your art in the contest.
We can’t wait to see all the wonderful wildlife chalk art that everyone will create. Thank you for helping us raise awareness of the importance of protecting wildlife this Endangered Species Day!
There are also many other Endangered Species Day events happening around the world, from webinars to nature walks to activities you can do at home. You can find these events and more at www.endangeredspeciesday.org.
