Pink flamingos are seen in the Camargue regional nature park
Pink flamingos are seen in the Camargue regional natural park, near Arles, southern France, April 12, 2015. Situated in the delta of the Rhone River on the French Mediterranean coast, classified by UNESCO, the Camargue Biosphere Reserve is made up of a mosaic of lagoons of fresh, brackish and saline wetlands, one of the most important in Europe. The Camargue covers an area of over 930 km? (360 square miles) with an exceptional biological diversity and home to unique breeds of horses and bulls, and more than 400 species of birds including pink flamingos. The marshy land could be impacted by climate changes and coastal erosion in the future as one scientific model for the year 2100 predicts the ocean level rising 50 cm above current levels, and another estimating a 1 metre level rise. Paris will host the World Climate Summit in 2015, called the COP21. Picture taken April 12, 2015. REUTERS/Jean-Paul Pelissier

Dino Cozzarelli, an Ecuadorian orthotist and prosthetist living in Costa Rica, is attempting to introduce affordable prosthetic limbs for patients by purchasing prosthesis used previously in the U.S. and Europe and modifying them to fit their new wearers. For instance, a new bionic knee costs an average of $20,000 while a used one purchased and fitted with new sockets would cost patients only a quarter of its price. According to Cozzarelli, modifying plastic prosthesis is a better option for patients using free wooden prosthesis funded by the state's social security system, which are heavier and of lower quality than plastic ones.

A man with a wooden leg cleans rubbish from the tracks of a circular train in Yangon's suburbs September 17, 2012. Around Yangon, with its growing and increasingly demanding population of almost five million, a circular train operates, moving passengers through its suburbs. On a three hour long ride, a train made of rusted vehicles marked with different classes but little visible difference between them, takes passengers around the city stopping briefly at numerous small stations. As Myanmar opens up, the most immediate physical changes are on its streets, as new cars begin plying roads long dominated by rattletrap buses and rusting taxis. Barely changed since the British colonial era in the early 20th century, some of the decades-old buses and trains are starting to be retired. Picture taken September 17, 2012.

Heather Bowser, a second generation Agent Orange victim who's father Bill Morris was a U.S. soldier who served in Vietnam's southern Bien Hoa city from 1968-1969 during the Vietnam war, walks as she visits the Friendship village, a hospice for Agent Orange victims outside Hanoi August 9, 2011. Delegates from around the world gathered in Hanoi for the second international conference on Agent Orange victims from August 8 to 10, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the introduction of Agent Orange/Dioxin into Vietnam. Agent Orange is a dioxin-laced defoliant sprayed by U.S. troops in the Vietnam War to destroy crops and jungle cover shielding guerrillas. U.S. warplanes used it the first time on August 10, 1961, in Vietnam's central Kontum province, dropping about 18 million gallons of the defoliant on southern Vietnam for most of the 1960s. The defoliant released dioxins that have been blamed for health problems on people exposed with claims of dioxin poisoning by more than 3 million people in Vietnam.
