White Bear Lake, MN – Wildlife Forever is proud to announce the continuation of their partnership with the Guy Harvey Foundation for the 2024 The Art of Conservation Fish Art Contest. The Guy Harvey Foundation will continue to support the Guy Harvey Shark Award, a special category of the competition featuring all species sharks.        
“Sharks are an incredibly important part of the ocean ecosystem, and it has been very unfortunate to see populations declining over time. We hope this award brings awareness to the issue, and connects students to their conservation needs,” said Greg Jacoski, Executive Director, Research and Policy at the Guy Harvey Foundation.
