Canon’s Brent Stirton named Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017

Grand title winner 2017 (also winner of The Wildlife Photojournalist Award: Story category) is Canon Ambassador Brent Stirton with ‘Memorial to a Species’. The killers of this black rhino were probably from a local community. Entering the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park game reserve at night, they shot the bull using a silencer then hacked off its two horns.
