The 3rd Annual Ohio Wildlife Legacy Stamp photo contest is underway, challenging resident photographers to enter their best snapshots of a native salamander. The winning photograph will be featured on the third Ohio Wildlife Legacy Stamp to be issued March 1, 2012.

The contest is open to Ohio residents, ages 18 years and older; one cash prize will be awarded to the winning photographer. Young photographers, age 17 and under, also are encouraged to submit their photographs of these vernal pool inhabitants. The winner in this category will receive Web and print recognition.

The $15 Ohio Wildlife Legacy Stamp will be available for purchase online March 1, 2012 at wildohio.com. Proceeds from sales of Ohio Wildlife Legacy Stamps help support restoration of endangered and threatened wildlife species, research projects, land purchases and conservation easements, and educational products for students and wildlife enthusiasts.

Each year, a collectible stamp depicting a different animal will be issued to highlight the diversity of Ohio’s natural world.
