Going wild at home

ALTHOUGH wildlife parks are closed, children should not forget they are surrounded by wildlife.

A competition being run by Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, Pearcedale asks school-aged students to look around their backyard, home or balcony to discover and photograph wildlife.

For a chance to win one of four $100 Moonlit Sanctuary gift vouchers children should go to the website and upload their best photos along with one fact about the creature in their picture.

The competition runs until 5pm, Friday 24 April. Winners will be announced Monday 27 April.
