Don’t you just love this amazing wildlife photography? Paul Joynson-Hicks said: “Each year we see a wider variety of species doing funny things, whether it’s a very naughty penguin (which had my kids rolling around the floor in hysterics) or dancing lions, a chillin’ chimp or even bee-eaters having a shouting match – they’re hysterical! Of course, the other aspect of our funny competition is letting people know what they can do at home to be conservationists. Our planet is in distress, now we just need to know what to do. Hopefully, we can provide a few small tips to get people started.”
The Winners will be announced on November 13, 2019. The Overall Winner gets an incredible one-week safari in the Masai Mara, Kenya as well as a unique handmade trophy from the Art Garage in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
