Caption: Single hard coral colony (Acropora sp.) growing in an area devastated by dynamite fishing. Home-made explosives, often made from World War Two munitions, are used as an easy and fast way to catch fish. However, this method also destroys the very corals that support the fish populations themselves. Photographed in Mios Befondi, West Papua in Indonesia, Asia.
