Conservation (Impact) Photographer of the Year
Laszlo Foldi Hurghada, Egypt
"This image shows snorkelers getting too close to a whale shark," says Földi. "Some even attempted to touch the shark. This can be dangerous for the shark, but also for the people. Luckily, nobody was injured on this occasion. I took this photo to draw attention to the negative aspects of whale shark tourism and to highlight the need for increased regulations around wildlife interactions."
