Goodlifer: Amazing Wildlife Photography

Humans are visual beings, we have to see something with our own eyes to really believe it. Perhaps this is why many environmental organizations are holding photo contests, calling for photographers all over the world to submit their best captures of amazing wildlife. Here at Goodlifer we firmly believe in the power of optimism and, to us, the finalists of two recent wildlife photography contest are not only beautiful pictures—they are also powerful agents of positive change.

About

What constitutes the good life? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves since the dawn of time and something we all strive for. To us, the good life is not a destination but a journey. We want to see more positivity in the world. Thinking happy thoughts makes for happy people, and happy people are more productive, innovative and at peace with the world. We believe in the transformative power of good news.
