The planet of human

Medny island is a wonderful place where you can still find pristine nature. As the island is located far from the human civilization there are many wild animals still living there. But is it all as good as it seems? These pictures show that there are certain problems here…

Unfortunately, the human civilization in these wild places leaves its awful mark too.

You can see a young sea lion on the first photo. Inevitable death is waiting for this young male Steller sea lion. The death will be slow, horrible and painful. The mortal loop does this black job. The lion grows up, his neck becomes thicker but the cord does not stretch. The loop throttle poor animal more and more. Within several years the cord will cut a lion's throat. It is a really painful death.

There are heaps of trash which waves brings to coast of Medny island from the sea on the second photo.

The third photo is very symbolical. Barbed wire and the island behind it. There was a frontier post here. Frontier guards left this place long time ago but this awful wire is still here.

Next photo was made at the Kuriles. The cow at the garbage pit. Drink milk to be healthy!

Let's take care of the world otherwise our children will see only ugliness around!
