Call of the wild

Want to see a golden snub-nosed monkey from China’s Qinling Mountains trying to stay warm? How about a hippo as he assumes his place in Zimbabwe’s Long Pool? Or maybe a coyote from Burnaby, BC sniffing the early October air for signs of rodents? If you want to see all three, plus 100 other prize-winning photos from the 2011 Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition (an initiative by BBC Wildlife Magazine and London’s Natural History Museum that’s now in its 48th year), go to Victoria’s Royal BC Museum before April 9; it’s the exhibit’s only North American stop. The winners were chosen from 41,000 entries from 95 countries. The competition is stiff, but all of its categories (17 in 2011) are open to amateurs and professionals of any age. There’s even a category for kids under 17. If you’d like to enter, the 2012 edition closes on February 23. Otherwise, admission is adults $16, seniors and kids six to 18 $10.15, kids under 5 free.
