Calendar captures our natural beauty
Geocatch has drawn on the talents of local photographers in its recently launched Eco-Calendar, which showcases the region through a series of photos.
The featured images were selected as part of a competition that invited participants to submit images of the Geographe Bay Catchment.
Geographe Catchment Council chairwoman Felicity Bradshaw said the competition was run to connect with people in the catchment and for them to “share what they love about our natural environment”.
“The beauty and diversity of images taken by the community for our Eco-Calendar competition reflect the values we’ve tried to capture in our new Geographe Catchment Management Strategy,” she said.
The judges, including Michael Taylor, a Geocatch member, immediate past president of Busselton Camera Club and a registered judge with the WA Photographic Judges Association, was charged with the difficult decision of whittling down the 55 entries to 13.
He said the images reflected entrants’ “stewardship of the biodiversity of our corner of Australia”.
The calendar was launched last Thursday and is available free from the GeoCatch office on Duchess Street, Busselton between 8.30am and 4.00pm
The 2019 calendars are available, at no cost, from the GeoCatch office on Duchess Street, Busselton between 8.30am-4.00pm.
This project is supported by funding from the WA Government’s State Natural Resource Management Program.
