    Reported by:

    Each year tens of thousands of kangaroos (and other Australian wildlife) are killed or fatally injured by cars, often dying slow and traumatic deaths, having been clipped, but not immediately killed. If someone stops and checks, sometimes joeys can be found still alive in their dead mothers pouch, and if lucky, can be rescued and cared for by dedicated people such as these, who look after look after them in their home until they are old enough to be released back into the wild.

    Story 11

    The subject is everything here. Clever compositions would not help. Often that is the case. You just need to be there and get the angle that shows the scene clearly and with supportive information. This angle of view also helps to show the details of the home interior, which is important to put the subject in context. The obvious burning (darkening) of the background and edges of the frame hurt the image.
