Nature's Witness Photos

Nature's Witness

The National Wildlife Federation and the American Association for the Advancement of Science are proud to present “Nature’s Witness™,” an exhibition of powerful wildlife photographs chosen to inspire conservation. 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. To learn more about this photography exhibit, visit nwf.org/photocontestexhibit.

All the photographers with images in our exhibit have generously donated their framed exhibit prints for purchase after the exhibit closes, with proceeds going to support the conservation mission of the National Wildlife Federation. This generous gesture reflects the photographers’ devotion to wildlife and conservation.

Visit our virtual exhibit to see these images up close and read the stories behind them.
