NEEF Launches Algal Bloom Photo Contest

Finally, the chance for something positive from an algal bloom! 

The National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) would like help documenting algal blooms in the nation’s waters. Algal blooms can occur in water bodies as small as a neighborhood pond and as big as the Gulf of Mexico. When algae grow out of control in our waters, the result can be unappealing, harmful to our health and harmful to the environment. Submit photos of algal blooms for a chance to win great prizes and have your photo featured in a national magazine! Your submissions will help build a photo library that can be used to educate more people about algal blooms and illustrate the prevalence and impacts of algal blooms around the country.

Photos must be submitted by September 30. For more information and official contest rules, please visit:
