Taking a break from a world of woe, we present the winners of this year's Comedy Wildlife Photo Competition. The contest, featuring winning images culled from entries from 86 countries, was founded by two wildlife photographers working in conjunction with the Born Free Foundation, an international wildlife charity working to save animal lives, protect rare species, end captive animal exploitation and help communities and wildlife live together without conflict. This year's images, like last year's, serve to raise awareness of conservation issues and remind us of all of nature's grit and grace and exuberance - which, despite our daily calamities, still abounds. Just lookit these guys. There must be hope.
