This September, Melbourne Zoo is set to host the best wildlife photographs from around the world that have featured in National Geographic over the past 130 years. Curated by Kathy Moran, the exhibition will include some of the world's most renowned wildlife photographers.
Melbourne Zoo director Kevin Tanner hopes the spectacular photographs will compel visitors to remember that all animals deserve our greatest respect, awe and preservation.
'These extraordinary photographs show what some of the world’s most wondrous wildlife looks
like in their natural habitat,' Mr Tanner said. 'As a zoo-based conservation organisation, we are
doing our very best to ensure a future rich in wildlife, and we are extremely proud to debut this
stunning exhibition at Melbourne Zoo.'
National Geographic's 50 Greatest Wildlife Photographs shows an unmatched legacy of artistic, scientific and technical achievement. Showcasing the evolution of photography, the images convey how innovations such as camera traps, remote imaging, and underwater technology have granted photographers access to wildlife in their natural habitat.
The exhibition opens on 7 September 2018 and closes 30 November 2018 at Carousel Park, Melbourne Zoo.
