9 Incredible Photographs of Wildlife In and Around Calgary

They are the winners of Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society's Capture the Wild Photography Contest.




 

This winter, the Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society hosted a photo contest and the winners have been chosen. 

The challenge was to photograph animals native to Southern Alberta in their natural habitat. There are plenty of options for animals to photograph – more than 400 animal species call Calgary home — but capturing them at just the right moment without any human interaction takes skill. All of the photographs submitted were taken by amateur photographers and reviewed by a panel of judges.

These are the winners of Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society's Capture the Wild Photography Contest. Look for the photographs in CIWA's 2019 calendar and at various events around the city.
