The finalists of this year’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest include some really striking photos. But one of them illustrates how deep in trouble nature is. Justin Hofman took a sad photo which caused many reactions, and which will stick in our minds for a long time.
The photo features a tiny seahorse tightly grasping a pink, plastic cotton swab in the waters near Indonesian island Sumbawa. This poor animal, and many others, swim and drift surrounded b the enormous amount of trash and sewage.
