A word from the photographer:

“A northern gannet tangled in a piece of fishing net. We can see that the net is stuck around its neck and between the mandibles of its beak. This handicap could impede the animal’s ability to survive in its natural environment. This shows the terrible impact of pollution that kills thousands of marine animals every year.”

Le mot du photographe :

“Un fou de Bassan, emmêlé dans un morceau de filet de pêche. On peut apercevoir le filet coincé autour de son cou et entre les mandibules de son bec. Ce handicap pourrait empêcher l’animal de survivre dans son milieu naturel. Cela montre le terrible impact de la pollution qui tue chaque année des milliers d’animaux marins.”
