“People who litter are unwittingly helping to kill and injure the wildlife we all love.”

Chris Packham, an environmentalist and presenter for the UK's BBC is using photography to help remind people of the importance of deposing of waste responsibly.

"As a naturalist, I'm only too aware of mankind's impact on the natural world and litter is one very visible example of this," Packam told The Huffington Post. "Not only is it unsightly but it seriously affects wild animals both on land and in our oceans."

"I was delighted to be asked to explore this issue through the camera lens, juxtaposing the inherent beauty of our natural world with the ugliness of the litter and rubbish carelessly discarded each and every day. Through these images I hope to inspire people to dispose of their litter more responsibly and play their part in caring for the fabulously diverse wildlife that enriches us all."
