The National Wildlife Federation and the American Association for the Advancement of Science are proud to present “Nature’s Witness™,” an exhibition of 50 powerful wildlife photographs chosen to inspire conservation. Free and open to the public from 9am-5pm Monday through Friday, the exhibit will run through April 2020.
All 50 images were entries in the annual National Wildlife® Photo Contest, which draws more than 22,000 images from around the world every year. Within the exhibit, one group of images titled “Nature’s Challenge” raises awareness about some of the threats putting wildlife at risk today, including habitat loss, invasive species, disease and climate change. Another set of photographs titled “Life’s Essentials” will explore how people can help species thrive by gardening for wildlife.
This is a family-friendly event, so kids will also enjoy seeing and learning about the animals represented in the exhibit—everything from polar bears and alligators to baby opossums and breaching whales. The exhibit will include a special room where kids can pick up a copy of the National Wildlife Federation’s children’s publications, including Ranger Rick®, Ranger Rick Jr.™, and Ranger Rick Cub™.
We hope you'll make time to stop by and enjoy these powerful photographs of wildlife—sure to inspire us all to act on behalf of saving the creatures that share our planet.
