Calgary Zoo's campaign to Choose Canada's Greatest Animal

To celebrate Canada's 150th, the Calgary Zoo ran a campaign to choose Canada's favorite animal---the idea being that the Beaver was chosen as Canada's official animal almost immediately after Canada was formed, and perhaps these other animals didn't get a fair chance.  For a big wipeable mural for their 150th celebration events, we created a nature scene featuring their six challengers---the gray wolf, bison, whooping crane, mountain goat, great gray owl, and grizzly bear---along with the incumbent, the beaver.  The zoo then asked us to create seven individual 11x17 take-home coloring sheets, each featuring one of the seven animals (see gallery below).
