WPY Changemakers

Photography allows us to tell powerful stories about the wildlife we share this planet with - a beautiful but increasingly fragile place.

We all have the power to shape the future of the natural world and we all have our part to play in helping to find solutions to the planetary emergency.

Discover how wildlife photography can help you to connect with and make a positive impact on the natural world.

Impact of an image

Behind every photograph is a story of people joining together with one voice to create change. Our WPY photographers work not only to share the beauty of nature but to secure the future of our planet, and you can do the same. Take your phone or pick up a camera and share your experience of nature with us.
