Wild Art de Damiani Damiani de Roma (Roma)

I waited for several nights to get a good shot, when finally the entire family arrived.

Concrete jungle de Giancarlo Velmarch de Pamplona (Navarra)
Lugar: Kampala, Uganda.
Descripción: Kampala is the fastest growing city in Uganda. This usually means losing natural areas and entire ecosystems when done unconsciously. In this case a swamp was reduced into a small patch of trees. Now confined these monkeys are forced to look for food elsewhere.

Causalitat destructiva de Ariadna Lacruz Romani de Barcelona (Barcelona)
Lugar: San Pedro del Pinatar, Múrcia
Descripción: L'ésser humà ha anat creant el seu camí i satisfent els seus desitjos sense pensar que no són els únics que viuen en aquest planeta. Molts dels nostres errors, sorgits de la cobdícia, han sigut la causa de molts dels efectes de destrucció del medi ambient. Mentre que els nostres errors queden permanentment, els éssers vius i els entorns naturals van desapareixent, acabant sent un petit record.

Gold Miners Up Early de Louis Guillot de London (London)
Lugar: Peru, Tambopata
Descripción: I saw these illegal gold miners on a boat trip down a river in the Amazon. It is easy to build a hatred for these people, they help fuel the destruction of the jungle and in some areas are responsible for the genocide of indigenous communities. Not all gold miners are like this though. Those I met were normal people who were desperate and needed to feed their families. Many actually loved nature.
