From intimate portraits to wild landscapes. Internationally-acclaimed exhibition Wildlife Photographer of the Year returns to the museum on 7 March 2019.
On loan from the Natural History Museum in London, these 100 extraordinary images celebrate the diversity of the natural world, from intimate animal portraits to astonishing wild landscapes.
Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, running for more than 50 years. It has a pivotal role in providing a global platform to showcase the natural world’s most powerful and challenging imagery.
"If you love wildlife, allow 45 min at least to wend your way through it all and marvel at the diverse and beautiful entries."

Winning images are selected for their creativity, originality and technical excellence.
