The yearly photographic competition was held for the first time in 1965 and attracted 361 entries.

Today it receives around 48,000 entries from 100 countries.

There are 100 photographs on show, capturing fascinating animal behaviour, spectacular species and the diversity of the natural world.

But some of the images, in the photojournalism categories, also raise important conservation issues, exposing mankind's impact on the natural environment, and the damage caused by the illegal wildlife trade.

The exhibition is open daily from 10am until 4pm.

Admission is £5 for adults and free for under 16s.
