The facts are alarming:
• 91% of plastic is not recycled
• 1 million single-use plastic bottles are sold every minute around the world
• 500 billion plastic bottles are used around the world globally
• bottled water costs 2000 times more than tap water
• by 2050 the ocean is expected to contain more plastic than fish (by weight)
This photographic print of a turtle resting on a plastic bottle was made while the female was returning to the sea after laying eggs on a beach. The print has become a symbol of my conservation photography work that aims to link people and planet. This photographic print focuses our attention on the need to find a balance between man and nature.
