"A Cry For Help"

“I found this piece of wood that resembles a human hand, that seemed to be crying out for help, like someone that has been thirsting for water and has possibly seen a glimmer of hope – and extending its fingers, hopeful for some replenishment and life-giving substance. I believe nature is crying out to us as the original caretakers of creation, its animals, plant life, natural heritage, to save them from destruction and despair”- Michelle Swanepoel, the winner of the ‘Our Coast Your Photo’ competition in Namibia.  The purpose of the competition was to raise awareness on environmental issues, especially the threat of heavy industrial development on Namibia's coast.
