‘Wildlife Photographer of the Year’ exhibition, on loan from the Natural History Museum in London, is opening at Sewerby Hall and Gardens on 7 May.
It features exceptional images capturing fascinating animal behaviour, spectacular species and the diversity of the natural world.
An exciting series of weekend events will take place every weekend until 17 July, as well as a Friday event for younger visitors.
Wildlife Photographer of the Year, a global platform that has showcased the natural world’s most astonishing and challenging sights for over 55 years, is the most prestigious photography event of its kind.
There will be a variety of events and activities at Sewerby Hall and Gardens throughout the exhibition. Rusticus Adventures will focus on Wacky Wildlife on the first weekend of May (7 and 8). Take a snap with a wily woodpecker, a ditzy dragonfly, or a barmy badger.
As well as this, Rusticus Stilt Walkabouts will be enjoyed – the mischievous Flamingo loves to munch on tidbits, raid picnic baskets, and challenge visitors to stand on one leg!
Visitors will also be able to make willow fruit kebabs at the Sewerby Zoo on Sunday, 8 May, and Wildcats will be using their Wildcats frames to aid them in becoming Sewerby photographers, capturing a glimpse of the wildlife of the Sewerby Zoo.
