PARIS: The World Wi
de Fund for Nature (WWF) has partnered with the French airline AOM, the children’s magazine Okapi and the cable channel Canal J to organize a drawing contest to raise awareness of endangered species.
Children are invited to draw one of the four animals: the lute turtle, the red ibis, the jaguar or the cagou. The winning drawings will be reproduced on a AOM airplane, which will become the worldwide ambassador for the protection of nature and endangered species.
The jury, headed by explorer and journalist Stéphane Peyron, will meet in August to determine the winners.
The first winners and their families will be offered an educational trip to French Guiana with a scientist from WWF.
