Got Box Turtle?
Photographer: Ari Kaufman, June 2011
Vote for Great Swamp Watershed Association's submission to Cvent's photo contest and help us win $10,000 for our environmental programs. This shot was taken by volunteer photographer Ari Kaufman on the second day of GSWA's 2011 BioBlitz at Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge (June 18, 2011). In addition to collecting scientific data, this year's BioBlitz focused on educating children about the local environment, especially the great variety of wildlife found in the Great Swamp watershed. A few days following the event, the father of one of our young participant wrote to us to say, “[You] made my son feel special. This event changed his life." We cannot imagine a better compliment than that.
Help us continue this legacy for many years to come. Vote for this photo once a day from August 9 through August 22!
