Caption: Coral reef devastation. This area of coral reef has been 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 corals that support the fish population. Photographed near Biak, West Papua in Indonesia, Asia.
