KENEDY -- There’s a story behind every photograph, so imagine the lessons learned from the traveling “Wildlife In Focus” exhibit featuring 259 award-winning museum-quality photos. The exhibit showcases 22 different classifications of birds, and numerous classes of native mammals, insects, arachnids, reptiles, amphibians, and landscapes of South Texas.

View the exhibit at the former “Little Red Schoolhouse,” located at 216 W. Main St. in Kenedy, Sept. 9-20.

A special open house with light refreshments will be held Monday, Sept. 9, from 5-8 p.m. Special Lonesome Dove Fest hours will be Saturday, Sept. 21, from 4-6 p.m. Regular viewing will be during office hours. The exhibit is sponsored by the Karnes County Historical Society and Brenda Hansler of Vernon Co.

The exhibit travels throughout 16 counties of the Coastal Bend region. To date, it has visited more than 200 venues including libraries, museums, banks, schools, and art centers, with a permanent exhibit at the Corpus Christi International airport. By the end of its two-year tour, the photos will be seen and appreciated by more than 100,000 people, spreading public awareness about wildlife conservation.

Known as one of the richest wildlife photo contests in the world, it is also one of the most unique and innovative programs in Texas. Initially, the sponsors raised $70,000 dollars in prize money; they then recruited top nature photographers from around the world and teamed them up with South Texas ranchers. The teams were given nine months to photograph.

Three world-renowned judges selected 259 winning images out of more than 3,020 digital images submitted in the contest. Winning photographers and landowners shared the prize money equally.

In Texas, 94 percent of land is privately owned and it is that partnership that made these photographs possible. Many times, until the landowner sees his/her land through the lens of a photographer they don’t truly understand and appreciate their land and role they play in protecting it.
