I could be wrong, but I don't think you need the hashtag '#' when you call wildlife in the href. Seriously, don't take my word for it, I'm just spitballing here...

I tried your code and the challenge provided the answer:

Bummer! Since the style sheet is not in a separate folder, make sure you're using 'url()' to set the background image value to 'img/bear.jpg'.

Folder path was off.
