Just think those particular pictures in the original BBC article are staged for dramatic effect. For example, Blue Planet doesn't have a great reputation for being honest with its audio and visuals and these pictures are similar.
It's not a BBC article. It's the BBC reporting on an article in The National Geographic.
Next time you drive anywhere look at the amount of plastic shit lining the verges. That animals come into contact with the vast amount of harmful waste we leave laying about is indisputable. That you think those pictures are staged or manipulated is, to me, utterly baffling. there are far worse images -- a couple of which I posted for you. Go and look for yourself.
Yes it is a BBC article, you linked it yourself. My words were very specific when I referred to 'these pictures are similar'.
No, I don't see plastic where-ever I look. I am lucky enough to live in a less populated area of the world which has quite strict environmental restrictions compared to many other places. If your original point, as inferred by the title of the thread, was to point out a negative aspect of the way the human race behaves, then I am in agreement with you. Do I need to repeat for a third time that I am not arguing your original point? But these pictures are emotion bait, clearly manipulated for maximum effect and piss me off because the people taking the photos don't care for the animals at all. Feel free to take some photos yourself of these areas you see. I am more inclined to be moved by those, or accounts from divers like Gonzo who have nothing to benefit from this, than some award winning photographer does.
