Wildlife Forever is a visionary leader in conservation education for children and adults. We believe that conservation education will ultimately determine the future of America’s wildlife heritage. We believe in inclusion, diversity and reaching out to younger Americans who have not had an opportunity to experience the great outdoors.

Fish Art Contest

Wildlife Forever’s Fish Art Contest has celebrated over 25 years as an amazingly successful conservation education program. Combining art and writing with science captures the imagination of students and fosters discovery of the natural world while increasing awareness of and respect for aquatic resources. Inspired by a brilliant fifth-grader from Minnesota in 1997, our annual contest attracts thousands of children each year from across the country and the world.
