Nature in sharp focus
Students from across the WA outback have been busy snapping away to highlight the extraordinary natural world they call home.
The eighth annual Kaz Collins School of the Air photo competition received 146 entries from 46 students representing the five schools.
Port Hedland School of the Air Year 5 student Jessica Percy’s shot of a rainbow beeeater snacking on a dragonfly earned her the overall first prize for the competition.
Carnarvon SOTA student Stanley Hammarquist, 8, was named runner-up for her striking pink mulla mulla photo.
Rangelands NRM chief executive Debra Tarabini-East said the competition was an opportunity to raise awareness of natural resource management and showcase the diversity of plants and animals.
“At Rangelands NRM, we are working with land managers in the rangelands, to manage our biodiversity and protect the environments in which they live,” she said.
“It’s great that the kids are already thinking about these topics at such a young age.”
Prizes included cameras, science kits, books, games and a certificate.
