PRETOMA is a Finalist in International Photo Contest

September 5, 2013

Two photos submitted by 2010 Goldman Prize recipient Randall Arauz’s organization PRETOMA have been selected as finalists in the OCEANS 2013 photo competition.

The international, online competition aims to generate an emotional impact and raise awareness about environmental issues by showcasing photographs that are both majestic and harrowing.

The photos below depict a hammerhead shark lying on the deck of a ship after having its fins severed and a dead green sea turtle atop a pile of debris brought in by a shrimp trawler.

Arauz was awarded the Goldman Prize in 2010 for his work to stop the inhumane and cruel practice of shark finning.
