Fish Art & Art of Conservation Contest

The ART of Conservation

Wonders of Wildlife is the Missouri host for the Wildlife Forever Fish Art Contest

The Fish Art Contest was inspired in 1997 by a 5th grader’s homework assignment and has grown into an international competition introducing young people to the wonders of fish, the joy of fishing and the importance of aquatic conservation. The Fish Art Contest uses art, science and creative writing to foster connections to the outdoors and inspire the next generation of stewards.
