Sanctuary Wildlife Photography Awards 2014
SPECIAL MENTION: MANJEET H. JADEJA
C’est Fini: This jungle cat Felis chaus met its end under the wheels of a vehicle on a road near Gujarat’s Thol Wildlife Sanctuary. As India’s protected areas are cleaved open by roads and industry, more and more wild animals will meet their untimely end in this gory, undignified way. The photographer rightly said that though the pleasure of the art lies in showcasing nature’s beauty, images like this are integral to conservation.
