The National Wildlife Federation has selected 50 images from its National Wildlife Photo Contest, a competition that celebrates the power of photography to advance conservation and connect both photographers and viewers with wildlife and nature. Though the contest began 48 years ago, Nature’s Witness is the first-ever exhibition of contest photographs.

Woodland Caribou

We invite you to wander our gallery and absorb the majesty of nature. Come witness its power, its beauty, and desperate need for our hands and our hearts. We must engage both to save species and the habitats that sustain them. Each of us can make a profound difference if we act, and what we stand to gain is nothing less than life itself.

Nature’s Witness will run between November 1st, 2019 and February 28th, 2020. Visiting hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the AAAS headquarters in downtown Washington, D.C.
