We tend to think of ocean pollution as a problem limited to major port cities—don’t know about you but I wouldn’t dive in the Hudson River.
A couple years ago, I was on assignment in one of the most remote regions of the world Komodo, Indonesia, and was shocked to see garbage bags and plastic bottles tiled across the ocean surface. The truth is that in today’s globalized world, few places (if any) are immune from human activity.
Today is World Environment Day, and as part of this celebration, the United Nations has focused its attention on the issue of ocean plastics pollution in Bali, Indonesia. Bali is a special place for its marine biodiversity and so I thought I’d share some of my favorite underwater photography from beautiful Bali.
