White’s seahorse, Hippocampus whitei Justin Gilligan, New South Wales White’s seahorse thrives in Sydney Harbour’s modified foreshore environment. As I photographed this individual in the early morning light, a plastic wrapper drifted along the opposite side of the swimming enclosure net, momentarily making its way into the frame. Plastic pollution is an emerging threat throughout the world’s oceans.
