Starting on 11th February, the Seaton Tramway will be host again of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition, on loan from the Natural History Museum, for two months with the chance to see some stunning images taken of wildlife across the world. Costing £5 entrance fee (for adults, children are free), the exhibition will be located at the new Seaton terminus between 11th February and 8th April 2022.
Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases the natural world’s astonishing and challenging sights for over 55 years. Launching in 1965 and attracting 361 entries, today the competition receives over 50,000 entries from across the world. The exhibition goes on a global tour to be seen by well over a million people and one of its stops is the Seaton Tramway!
Dr Doug Gurr, Director of the Natural History Museum, said: “These extraordinary images showcase the rich diversity of life on Earth and spark curiosity and wonder. Telling the story of a planet under pressure, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition illuminates the urgent challenges we face and the collective action we need to take. This year’s inspiring exhibition will move and empower audiences to advocate for the natural world.”
