The world-renowned Wildlife Photographer of the Year comes to Palmerston North from the Natural History Museum in London. It is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases the natural world’s most astonishing and challenging sights for more than 50 years.

Using photography’s unique emotive power to engage and inspire audiences, the images provide an annual snapshot of the ‘state of the global environment’ and the diversity of life in all corners of the Earth, facing the challenges of an uncertain future.
