One aspiring young photographer hopes to be named the grand final winner at a gala to mark the global celebration of UN World Wildlife Day in New York on Friday.

Judges – on behalf of the organizer the Secretariat of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (Cites) – chose 10 finalists from 500 photographs, capturing flora and fauna from minute insects, birds and reptiles to big cats, entered in the UN World Wildlife Day 2017 photo competition.

The competition, themed “Through young eyes,” invited young people aged 10 to 24 to submit their photos of wildlife as a way to highlight their vision and use their artistic talents to galvanize other young citizens in the protection of wildlife. This is a slideshow of their amazing images.

World Wildlife Day 2017 aims to motivate, engage and empower young people in wildlife conservation issues, echoing a strong call to better engage with youth from the 17th meeting of the Cites conference.
