This is one of the most horrific images on this list. It depicts an anteater, burned after a wildfire. If the previous images didn’t prove that humans destroy everything they touch, then this one surely will. This anteater suffered the horrendous effects of humans and now has to pay for it. We all have to pay for it.
As National Geographic states, “collective action can prompt dramatic global change. Sometimes, all it takes is one image. More often, it’s simply a collection of vignettes that show us what is at stake, what is happening to it – and more importantly, what we can do about it.” These images directly showcase what’s happening around the world. Now, it’s up to us to stop it (National Geographic).
