Deceptive beauty

A fisherman carries a bag of fish in a channel that flows into Guanabara Bay in Rio de Janeiro. The beautiful scene is deceptive, however: The world famous bay was once home to a rich and diverse ecosystem but has been severely impacted by urbanization, deforestation and pollution. More than 70% of the sewage generated by Rio's 12 million inhabitants flows into the bay untreated.
