Here are the best photos from the World Nature Photography Awards [Throwback]

This is a throwback on the World Nature Photography Awards (WNPA)

To win the top spot at the 2020 edition of the World Nature Photography Awards (WNPA), Canadian nature and wildlife photographer, Thomas Vijayan, had to climb a tree and wait for several hours.

He was deep inside the Tanjung Puting National Park in Indonesian Borneo, hoping to get a glimpse of the world’s largest tree-climbing mammal: the critically endangered orangutan.

Eventually, patience paid off and he was able to not just get his shot but also a gold in the “Animals in Their Habitat” category of the WNPA and the top spot as the World Nature Photographer of the Year.

“Our photographers really are shining a spotlight on the wonders of the natural world in a way that reminds us to do everything we can to protect the future of our planet," said Adrian Dinsdale, co-founder of the WNPA.

Profits from the entry fees, which saw over a thousand entries for its 2020 edition, go towards supporting various climate change charities.
