The competition celebrates the most extraordinary photographic images of the natural world.

The scenes captured by this year's photographers range from a grizzly bear tucking into his lunch in Grand Teton National Park in the Western US to 4,000 defrosting pangolins seized on their journey to China where they were set to be sold off as exotic meat.

This display brings together 100 of 2016's best entries, including Tim Laman's winning picture of a critically endangered Bornean orangutan perched high above the Indonesian rainforest. Laman spent three days rope-climbing a 30 metre tall tree to get the shot.

Also featured is 16-year-old Gideon Knight's spooky image of a crow silhouetted against the London night's sky, which won him the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year title.
