Inhabitants of rivers, lakes and swamps of the Amur basin became heroes of the International Contest of Children Paintings “Wetlands for Life”
To mark the 50th anniversary of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance, WWF has declared 2021 the Year for Wetlands in the Amur River basin. Three countries of the Amur-Heilong ecoregion: Russia, China and Mongolia are engaged in its events both environmental and educational.
Art works can be submitted until April 30. Children from 5 to 18 years old are invited to participate. Independently, or with the help of teachers and parents, they can upload their work to the site: https://amurinfocenter.org/en/konkurs-bolota-dla-jizni/
The results of the competition will be determined by the jury in June this year. Additionally, on the official page of the Contest, a “popular vote” is activated: anyone can vote for their favorite works. The winners of the Contest will be awarded with WWF diplomas and prizes, all participants will receive certificates.
All materials on the Year for Wetlands are available on the portal of the Amur Ecoregion AmurInforCenter https://amurinfocenter.org/tools/projects/vbu/
