2014 World Press Photo Winner in Nature Category, Steve Winter

Panthera

Panthera’s former Media Director and National Geographic photographer, Steve Winter, won first place in the 2014 World Press Photo Nature Category last week with his striking photo of cougar mother and her cub. Taken with a camera trap, these cougars are part of Panthera’s Teton Cougar Project (TCP) in Wyoming, which was also featured in the December issue of National Geographic.
