Plastic pollution has become a huge problem. It is especially the pollution in developing countries where plastics most often end up in the sea or are burnt directly on streets. Let's not make us or other living organisms be drowning in plastics!

I have been engaged in amateur photography for several years. Now I work at a rescue and rehabilitation centre for slow lorises in Sumatra led by The Kukang Rescue Program organization where I also take photos of everyday activities underway in the centre. Thanks to slow lorises, I have stood face to face to the reality of illegal wildlife trade and a big plastic pollution which is why I decided to address these issues.
