2016 Wildlife Comedy Awards Finalists

The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards in 2016…

This year’s competition featured over 2,200 hilarious entries from around the world, up from 1,502 entries in last year’s inaugural contest. Winning entries will be selected by a panel of judges that includes wildlife experts and a comedian (of course). The images make us laugh, but there’s a serious side to the whole endeavor which is to raise awareness for the need to protect the environment and habitat for wildlife. 

Here’s a look at a selection of the finalists
