Red Wolf Awareness Contest
Alrighty, it's been a long while since I've hosted a contest, so this should be fun. Please spread the word about it, folks.
So anyone who knows me knows I love red wolves. It's hard not to with them big ears, and cute faces! But, to much of my distress, their numbers have been plummeting in the wild. They are practically an unknown subspecies to those even living in North Carolina (currently the only place known they're found wild) . This contest is merely a tool to help be a voice to the problem, and bring awareness to it.
If you would like to donate to the cause, here's a way, but it's NOT required to enter the contest: online.nwf.org/site/Donation2?…
Here's a little more info about the issue from the US Fish & Wildlife service.
"The red wolf (Canis rufus) is one of the world's most endangered canids. Once common throughout the eastern and southcentral United States, red wolf populations were decimated by the early part of the 20th Century as a result of intensive predator control programs and the degradation and alteration of the species' habitat. The red wolf was designated an endangered species in 1967, and shortly thereafter the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service initiated efforts to conserve the species. Today, more than 50 red wolves roam their native habitats in eastern North Carolina, and nearly 200 red wolves are maintained in captive breeding facilities throughout the United States." RULES::
* The point of this contest is to bring attention to the critical state the population of the red wolves are in. So without it being said, it must at least have a red wolf in it. The rest can be left up to you.

Feel free to ask anything. I'll post the questions here after for others who may have similar questions. So we have to draw a red wolf?
There must be one in the entry, yes. The theme is to bring awareness to the problem of their near extinction in the wild. As to how that is interpreted, I'm leaving to the artist to be creative.
All submissions must be noted to me, or they will not be counted.
