See last month’s winning photo and this summer’s contest
Framed by the Pacific, Atlantic and Arctic oceans, Canada has the world’s longest coastline and one of the largest ocean bodies of any country in the world. We’re also home to one fifth of the world’s freshwater. It’s no wonder that Canadians feel a deep connection to nature when we are around water. That’s why this summer, we want you to share photos of the shorelines near you from coast to coast to coast.
A shoreline is anywhere land meets water, including the lakes, rivers, streams, creeks, ponds and wetlands in your neighbourhood. For our local shorelines, waterways and oceans around the world, shoreline litter is a global environmental problem that can have long term impacts on ecosystems, wildlife and people. Removing it helps make our aquatic ecosystems cleaner, healthier and safer for all living things. If your shoreline needs a makeover, you can organize a cleanup anytime of the year at shorelinecleanup.ca.
Last month, the Graeme Loader Photography Board was filled with your pictures of parks. Congratulations to Sam Ngo of Vaughan, Ont., whose photo (below) taken in Killarney Provincial Park in Northern Ontario was selected as our June photo contest winner. A big thank you to everyone who shared their photos. Visit here to view all the WWF-Canada June photo contest entries.
