Wildlife & Nature

The Wildlife & Nature Group (WNG) of the PSSL was formed in 2016. This special interest group comprises Wildlife & Nature photography enthusiasts from many walks of life. Today, we have over 55 members in this group.
All Group communications are via a WhatsApp group and we encourage those interested in joining the group to share their numbers with Ruvini at the PSSL office.
The group meets frequently for sharing knowledge, experiences and of course camaraderie. We occassionally invite experts in the sphere of wildlife & nature photography as guest speakers so that we expand our knowledge in this area of interest.

Weekly activities:

  • The PSSL Members Forum on Facebook has a wildlife theme every Monday. Anyone who is a member of the forum can post pictures as comments every Monday.
  • Monthly PSSL Compeition – Capture This! – Capture This has a special category for Wildlife. All members are encouraged to submit their photographs. The photographer with the highest points accumulated throughout the year wins a PSSL award in the Wildlife category at the annual International Competition & Exhibition.
