2011 Canadian Youth Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp

“The Canadian Youth Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp is not only a beautiful piece of art – it also helps support youth driven wildlife conservation projects across Canada.” – Robert Bateman

Wildlife Habitat Canada is thrilled to congratulate 18 year old Bethany Harris from Millarville, Alberta for being selected as the winning artist for the second annual Canadian Youth Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp.

The 2011 Youth Stamp was recently unveiled at the Shaw Studios in Calgary, Alberta with Robert Bateman, J.R. Shaw and others in attendance.

The Robert Bateman Get to Know Contest was created to urge youth to get outside and ‘get to know’ their wild neighbours.

Bethany Harris’ entry, entitled

Bethany Harris’ entry, entitled “Going Deeper”, depicts a moose in its native habitat. In addition to having her artwork featured on the stamp, Ms Harris’ moose is also on the cover of the 2011 Robert Bateman Get to Know Contest Calendar.

Bethany had this to say about her painting and the moose: “It’s amazing how you have to take a really close look to see one, then it quickly disappears into its habitat.

We not only have to go deeper to find them, and take the time to enjoy looking at them, but they too are having to find habitat elsewhere as the areas where they live become more developed – therefore going deeper was the feel I wanted to express in this painting.”

Wildlife Habitat Canada is continuing our partnership with Robert Bateman’s Get to Know Program to create this stamp that is being sold across Canada. Proceeds from the sale of the stamp will support youth-driven wildlife conservation projects.

By purchasing the Canadian Youth Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp you will help youth to understand the importance of the natural world to all of us, while ensuring that this exquisite resource is conserved for years to come.
