Fish and Game Wins Wildlife Film Festival Award

Three Fish and Game wildlife videos produced for school children garnered a Merit Award for Educational Value from the 25th Annual International Wildlife Film Festival. "Awards are given by the International Wildlife Film Festival to those selected productions that strive for excellence in the areas of biological diversity, technical achievement, aesthetic presentation and educational value," according to Katie Fernandes, Festival Coordinator. The videos, WILD About Wetlands, WILD About Bison and WILD About Moose, were written and produced by Idaho Department of Fish and Game for the state's teachers to use in their classrooms. The 10-minute videos are part of a "WILD" series that profiles either a type of habitat or a specific species. Children learn basic biology and scientific terms while viewing the wonders of nature. "Our WILD videos are a great tool for teaching the next generation about our wonderful wildlife heritage. We're proud of our product and delighted to earn the recognition of such a prestigious organization as the International Wildlife Film Festival," said Ingrid Bolen, Chief of Information and Education for Fish and Game.
