We all need to cheer up these days, and our friends in the nature are already at work to do so unconsciously!

Every year, the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards highlight the funniest photos of animals taken in the wild. Talented photographers from around the world manage to capture moments where animals seem to be experiencing very human emotions or dilemmas. 

Founders Tom Sullam and Paul Joynson-Hicks started the contest to raise awareness about wildlife conservation. They hope the pictures encourage people to shop responsibly, be mindful of their water use, and speak out about environmental issues  in addition to making people laugh.

And here are the winners of 2020 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. Don’t forget to comment on our Facebook post with the best pictures of your pets wether they are dogs, cats, parrots or mices!
