Mary River Turtle photos by Chris Van Wyk

Kickin’ it in the Mary River in Queensland, Australia, the Mary River turtle was discovered in 1995 but almost immediately went on the endangered species list and when photographer van Wyk snapped these underwater shots of one of the Mary River turtles sporting a punky green algae-hawk, the images were used to help support opposition to a proposed dam that would affect the turtle’s habitat. It also personally gave me inspiration to hit up my hair stylist and ask for the “Mary River”.
