About this challenge

Our partners at Untamed Photographer dedicate their craft to preserving nature and wildlife around the globe. They have recently teamed up with Belize Wildlife Clinic & Referral Clinic, a veterinary organization working to educate people on caring for and protecting the diversity of species native to Belize. This month, Untamed Photographer seeks to raise awareness to end the inhumane poaching of endangered species in Belize, and will donate support to Belize Wildlife Clinic & Referral Clinic and their need for a digital x-ray machine—but we need your help!

Our latest fiction Challenge supports the efforts initiated by Untamed Photographer and Belize Wildlife Clinic & Referral Clinic by asking you to write a creative story that includes the endangered bird of the tropical country, the Macaw. We hope that as you write, you remember how important it is to conserve and protect their homes. It doesn't matter if your story is a fairy tale or a fable—just put on your explorer hat, learn about the Macaw's natural habitat, and use your imagination! The details are totally up to you!
