“And are able to live their lives according to their needs.
“As a leading wildlife charity, we oppose the exploitation of wild animals in captivity.
“And campaign to keep them where they belong – in the wild.
“We promote Compassionate Conservation to enhance the survival of threatened species in the wild.
“And protect natural habitats while respecting the needs and safeguarding the welfare of individual animals.”
Funny Wildlife Pictures Win Awards
The photography competition is to raise awareness of the natural world.
It is “a photography competition that was light-hearted, upbeat, possibly unpretentious and mainly about wildlife doing funny things.
“After its first year, these objectives seem to have been met.”
And funny they are.
Years and years ago there was a TV show called – Kids Say the Darndest Things.
It was all about kids doing and saying the darndest things.
And boy was it ever funny.
The same applies to animals.
They can do the darndest and funniest things.
