background-image: url("img/bear.jpg");
    background-repeat: no-repeat;

.wildlife { background-image: url('img/bear.jpg'); background-repeat: no-repeat; }

Next, define the background property and value that prevents the background image from repeating in any direction.

I dont know why its not passing through! .wildlife { background-repeat: no repeat; }

also facing the same challenge

'-' is necessary. no-repeat

.wildlife{ background-repeat:no-repeat; }

background-repeat: no-repeat;

background-repeat:no repeat;

.wildlife{ background-image: url(img/bear.jpg); background-repeat: no-repeat; }
