Wildlife can be beautiful, mysterious and, at times, just plain funny! Each year, Bored Panda hosts a “Funniest Wildlife Photos” competition in order to raise awareness about wildlife conservation. The competition began in 2015 and has since attracted some of the best professional and amateur photographers who want to showcase their work…and the results are always hilarious!

Though penguins going to church and polar bear babies trying to hitch a ride from their mamas are bound to make you laugh out loud, the founders the competition urge you to always keep the cause at the forefront of your mind. Once you’re done getting a good laugh in, head on over to the born free website and spread the word about wildlife conservation. You can also investigate what you can do to lend a helping hand.

That said, let’s not forget why you came here, and scroll down to see the 14 winners of this year’s competition and a few stellar nominations from this year and last:
