Vote in the 2021 Habitat at Home Photo Contest

It’s time to vote for a winner in our 2021 Habitat at Home photo contest! We received over 300 entries, every one of them a delight. It was so much fun to see all of the butterflies, birds, bears, bobcats, bees, toads, lizards, salamanders, snakes, flowers, ferns, mosses, and more wild things showing up where you live.

Thank you to everyone who shared photos and videos! Your love of wildlife is inspiring more people to restore habitat at our homes and in our neighborhoods. Our judges struggled to choose just five finalists from so many excellent entries—but they narrowed it down to these five. Now it’s up to you to choose the winner!

You can only vote one time and you can’t change your vote, so choose carefully. The deadline for voting is Wednesday, May 26 at midnight. Which one is your favorite?
