Our latest photo mission with the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) just finished and we’re ready to announce the winners! We asked you to show us how stunning wild animals and plants are, and how we humans are connected to them. Because of the plethora of beautiful photos submitted to our Connected With Nature album, we were spoilt for choice!

Are you one of our lucky winners?

Congratulations to @hello_kayden, @putaput, @Anika_388, @dein_Benutzername and @manuelamatosmonteiro

Your photos showed the strong connections that we humans have with nature – from animals to plants and everything in between – and how people can make positive contributions to preserving biodiversity. You will each receive a photo book with gorgeous images of plant and animal life, in addition to family tickets to any WAZA-member zoo or aquarium. The winning photos will also be used in WAZA’s social media campaigns.

Here’s what the WAZA jury had to say:

“The quality of photos was really amazing. We were blown away by the variety of submissions and creativity of the EyeEm community. It would have been great if we could have had more winners!”

Let’s see the top 5 photos!
