Professional photographers and conservationists Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam created the awards to make wildlife conservation more engaging. They hope that humor and positivity will turn interest into action when it comes to protecting animals, Sullam told Bored Panda.

Below are 10 of the 44 finalist photos. Sullam said that they were supposed to be only 40, but he and his team could not just leave out four of the submissions.
