Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast and presenting sponsor Elizabeth Moore announce the People’s Choice winners for their inaugural Summer Photo Contest exhibit. Eleven-year-old Marley Smith received the top honor of People’s Choice Best-in-Show for her photograph titled Falcon Fury. Heading into sixth grade at Babcock Neighborhood School in Charlotte County, Smith lists photography, nature, and art as her passions, making this competition the perfect opportunity to show her skills. “I love nature photography because it’s fun to go outside and get out of the house,” says Smith. “I like taking photos that are close-up, sharp and full of natural light. Thank you Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast for the great opportunity!” 

“Engaging youth and connecting them to the beauty of our natural world is a central component in Conservation Foundation’s work,” says Conservation Foundation president Christine Johnson.
