12 Incredible Photographs of Wildlife In and Around Calgary

They are the winners of Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society’s Eye for 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. The contest is also a fundraiser for CWRS, which rescues and rehabilitates wild animals in and around Calgary.

These are the winners of Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society’s Eye for the Wild Photography Contest. They will also be displayed at an event in the fall and featured in a 2020 calendar.
