2017 Best Wildlife Photo

Website 245 participants 6,473 spottings

We're calling for your best wildlife photos! This mission is open to all members from all over the world and will run until January 2018. The best photo will be decided by popularity and by final voting by our rangers’ team. Together with the quality of your shots rangers will also take into account a combination of factors including the status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered) and the quality of original information provided in the habitat and description sections. The mission is for pictures submitted in 2017 and January 2018. Photos taken earlier than 2017 are accepted. Three winners will be announced for each organism category (with the exception of Pets). The winners will be announced on Facebook and Twitter and will receive some serious bragging rights! Mission photo by Albert Kang. See his spotting here!
