“Rare Species” category

“Rare Species” category
in the Open National Wildlife Photo Contest "Golden Lynx"
 
One of the most interesting and important categories in the open national wildlife photo contest "Golden Lynx" is “Rare Species” category. It is interesting because rare species of animals are difficult to find. It means it is not easy to take photos of them. The category is important because after seeing works in it participants of the contest and wild nature amateurs will know for sure which animals are rare. And they will never do any harm to them. This category was included by organizers of the contest for works made in the territory of Belarus. Scientists say rare species are wild animals which live in the territory of Belarus and are included in the Red book of the Republic of Belarus (or in the addendam), or ones with the status of international protection, or any other kind, which is rarely found in Belarus. Rarity of the species is proved by their small number and limited area of dispersal and evaluated on the basis of many years observation data. Therefore for confirmation of some species rarity in a photo  submitted to the contest specialists of the National Academy of Sciences will be engaged.
