Ocean Art 2023 - 2nd Place Underwater Conservation

2nd Place Underwater Conservation

Yinan Liu





Yinan Liu won a 4-night diving package at the Solitude Lembeh Dive Resort in Lembeh, Indonesia from Solitude Liveaboards & Resort!


The Story: 

When I went out to sea in the morning, I passed a small island and saw the fishermen on the island cutting up the sharks and tossing the useless parts on the beach. When I was back from diving in the afternoon, the abandoned parts were washed into the sea due to the high tide, allowing me to go underwater and capture this heartbreaking scene. I hope that through this photo, more people can work together to protect sharks. There will be no killing if there is no trading.
