SALEM, Ore.—The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife invites artists to enter its Habitat Conservation Stamp art contest. The winning artist will receive $3000 and his or her artwork will be used to produce a stamp and other promotional items. Deadline for entries is 5 p.m. Feb. 29, 2012.

Artwork must feature one of the fish or wildlife species identified in the Oregon Conservation Strategy in its respective Strategy habitat. There are 286 native species and 11 habitats called out in the Strategy, which is available on ODFW’s website.

See the ODFW website for a copy of the announcement, rules and entry form.

The contest winner will be chosen by a panel comprised of a Fish and Wildlife Commissioner and four citizens to be selected by ODFW’s Director. Artwork will be available for public viewing.

About the Habitat Conservation Stamp

Adopted by the 2011 Oregon State Legislature, the new Habitat Conservation Stamp allows Oregonians to purchase an annual stamp to benefit conservation of Oregon’s native species and habitats. Stamps sell for $40 a year and include a free ODFW Wildlife Area Parking Pass (a $22 value). Revenue will be used for restoration of the native habitats that are home to the state’s fish and wildlife. Habitat Conservation Stamps will go on sale in 2012.

About the Oregon Conservation Strategy

The Oregon Conservation Strategy provides a blueprint and action plan for the long-term conservation of Oregon’s native fish and wildlife and their habitats through a voluntary, statewide approach to conservation. It was developed by ODFW with the help of a diverse coalition of Oregonians including scientists, conservation groups, landowners, extension services, anglers, hunters, and representatives from agriculture, forestry and rangelands.
