[ #PlanetOrPlastic ] The Cuttlefish and the Condom | Photograph by Pasquale Vassallo (@pasquale_vassallo) . “The animal is beautiful in its colors but my bitterness grows when I notice what it tries to bring to the mouth with its arms,” writes #You#YourShotPhotographer Pasquale Vassallo. “I did not believe it, but what I saw is really a condom. I took a few photos as I thought about how we do not love and respect nature, and that we continue to destroy it.” — “Thank you for sharing this photo and story with us. I agree with #YourShotPhotographer Mar Medina who commented, ‘A great shot with a disgusting and disappointment about the scene. I totally agree with you! This is an unfortunate reality every time more and more often seen in the oceans.’ Photos like this are strong visual reminders that we as a human species must do better to respect and take care of our planet. It is our responsibility.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee) .

[ #PlanetOrPlastic ] Cup and Crab | Photograph by Noel Guevara (@noelguevaraphoto) . “A crab in a plastic cup floats near the surface in Caban Cove on Maricaban Island, Philippines,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Noel Guevara. “The subject was not tampered with, posed, or photo manipulated in post — in fact, I only intended to photograph the cup and was surprised to find a crab inside. It is as real as it gets and sadly, not out of the ordinary. Photographed while on assignment for Greenpeace.” — “Wow, Noel, this is so heartbreaking. Thank you for making this photograph and sharing it with the world. Out of sight, out of mind and the more images we see, the more awareness there will be of the dangers our seas are facing right now. ‘It's as real as it gets...’" — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas) .

[ #PlanetOrPlastic ] Plastic Ocean | Photograph by Steve De Neef (@stevedeneef) . “A whale shark filter feeds near a floating plastic bag, an all too common sight nowadays,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Steve De Neef. “Marine life suffer tremendously from our plastic use since most of it ends up in the ocean and stays there nearly forever in some form.” — “This photo is so heartbreaking for me. I love how you chose to wait until there was a marine animal in the background to really drive home the message that this plastic truly makes an impact on our oceans.” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas) .
