Sanctuary Asia's Wild Maharashtra
SPECIAL MENTION, VIKRAM POTDAR
The White-bellied Sea Eagle found in coastal habitats, is an impressive raptor with long, broad wings and a short, wedge-shaped tail. Seen here with a sea snake, it is known to skillfully capture its prey from surface waters using a swift aerial swoop. Pollution is a major threat to this magnificent eagle and its food chain. Keeping coastlines healthy benefits not just wild species, but the entire fishing community.
