Here’s some more fun Earth Day blogging. Today the Environmental Protection Agency announced the winners of its 2008 photo contest. The agency looked for photography that best demonstrates the mission to protect human health and the environment. Winners were chosen for each of three categories: "Enjoying the Environment," "Protecting the Environment" and "Nature and Wildlife." The photos appear in an online photo gallery at the EPA website. You can also view photos taken by the other finalists in each category.
The EPA judged nearly 750 photos, depicting images from all over the world, including Antarctica, Namibia, Malaysia and the U.S.
