The John E. Conner Museum at Texas A&M University-Kingsville will host Wildlife in Focus V: The Art of Survival through Friday, June 3. This dynamic photo exhibit features winners from the 2009 Coastal Bend Wildlife Photograph Contest held every two years.

Accompanying the exhibit is a 175-page book of the winning photographs. The traveling exhibit has shown at 250 venues in the 16-county Coastal Bend. Kleberg County participants include Hugh Lieck and landowners David and Elaine Haunschild from El Potrero Ranch.

The mission of the Coastal Bend Wildlife Education Program, the sponsor of the exhibit is to raise public awareness and promote wildlife and habitat conservation on the vast and precious ecosystems within the Coastal Bend.

 Private landowners partner with photographers to capture photographs of wildlife and habitats in the Coastal Bend, sharing equally any monetary prizes awarded by contest sponsors.

The Conner Museum is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free, but donations are accepted.
