Billedet er ubehageligt, men fortæller en vigtig historie.


Et billede af et dødt sort næsehorn med hornene savet af har sikret fotografen Brent Stirton prisen som 'Wildlife Photographer of the Year' (Årets dyrelivs-fotograf, red.).

Billedet er taget i et reservat i Sydafrika og vandt over 50.000 andre billeder fra 92 lande.

Prisen blev uddelt ved Det Naturhistoriske Museum i London, som står bag konkurrencen.

Andre billeder, som var med i opløbet, forestillede en grinende gorilla, en begravet ræv og en gruppe kaskelothvaler, der svømmede i folk i havet.

»Billedet symboliserer en af de største ressourcemæssige, ondskabsfulde og unødvendige miljøforbrydelser, som har brug for den største offentlige bevågenhed,« sagde en af dommerne, Roz Kidman, om vinderbilledet ifølge Daily Mail.

Passionate photographer @danielnelson_official is Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017. Congratulations, Daniël! This intimate scene of a gorilla lounging on the forest floor is peaceful, a state of being we would wish for all these magnificent creatures. - Daniel Beltra, #WPY53 judge and past grand title winner. Daniël's charismatic portrait depicts a young western lowland gorilla from the Republic of the Congo, lounging on the forest floor whilst feeding on a fleshy African breadfruit. The image captures the similarity between wild apes and humans, and the importance of the forest on which they depend. Western lowland gorillas are critically endangered, threatened by illegal hunting for bushmeat (facilitated by logging and mining roads), disease (notably the Ebola virus), habitat loss (to mines and palm oil plantations) and the impact of climate change. See Daniel's image and discover the full story at the new exhibition opening at the @natural_history_museum, London on Fri 20 Oct.

I am very honored and humbled to have won the 11-14 year old category of Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017 @nhm_wpy! I took this image of a female red fox upended in a snowy meadow just before my 14th Birthday last year in the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone. This image reminds me of the constant struggle that wildlife faces on a daily basis, and how resilient and resourceful animals like this fox have to be to survive. I am so glad this image was recognized, and Im really thankful to have had the opportunity to meet so many other photographers here in London that share my interest in making meaningful photos that may have a positive impact on wildlife. Thank you again to @nhm_wpy for this amazing honor. I hope that my many young photographer friends will enter this great competition this year. #nhm_wpy #wildlifephotographeroftheyear #redfox #youngwildlifephotographeroftheyear #WPY53 #lamarvalley #yellowstonenationalpark #nanpapix #vulpesvulpes #yellowstoneforever #londonnaturalhistorymuseum

Photo by @BrianSkerry A female leatherback turtle crawls back to the sea after nesting under moonlight on the island of St. Croix in the Caribbean Sea. Researchers are uncertain as to exactly how old leatherbacks must be to begin mating, though most estimates say the turtles must be 20-30 years old. The females crawls ashore typically after dark, digs her nest and lays a clutch of eggs. This picture was made at 2am, with a long exposure under a nearly full moon. Leatherbacks are the largest, widest-ranging and deepest diving of all sea turtle species. Their lineage dates back more than 100 million years.
