KAYA, South Sudan
Pictures of the Year: A picture and its story
SPLA-IO (SPLA-In Opposition) rebels carry an injured rebel after an assault on government SPLA (Sudan People's Liberation Army) soldiers, on the road between Kaya and Yondu, South Sudan, August 26, 2017. Goran Tomasevic: "This picture shows how the rebels lacked supplies to treat their wounded. They didn't even have a stretcher or bandages. This wounded rebel was in severe pain and I had to give him painkillers from my own supply. When rebels attacked the town of Kaya they distributed the few items they had to their men: a ragged strip of red cloth to serve as identification, a packet of biscuits and two ammunition clips per fighter. They ran out of bullets in 40 minutes and government forces counter-attacked, killing several people including American journalist Christopher Allen. Working in South Sudan requires commitment. On that trip, my colleague Siegfried and I crossed several rivers on foot. We worried about falling and getting our equipment wet. To minimise the risk, I distributed two cameras to two rebels and carried the third myself. It was unlikely all three of us would fall into the water. On our way back to the Ugandan border we traveled by motorbike. It rained heavily and the small streams became rivers. The drivers carried the motorbikes on their heads, balancing on underwater 'bridges' that were actually fallen trees. We carried our gear at head height to prevent them getting wet. Water came up to our chests. I also worried about crocodiles but thankfully I didn't see any. One night, we walked in single file through elephant grass in complete darkness. The grass rose above our heads. When we lay down on the ground to rest, it was so cold I started shaking. On the way back, we ran out of water and I couldn't find my chlorine tablets. We had to drink from swamps, streams and boreholes. Thankfully, nobody got too sick." REUTERS/Goran Tomasevic/File photo SEARCH "POY STORY" FOR THIS STORY.

A crocodile attacks a wildebeest (connochaetes taurinus) as it crosses the Mara river during a migration in Masaai Mara game reserve, 270 km (165 miles) southwest of capital Nairobi, July 28, 2009. The annual zebra and wildebeest migration is expected to attract a large number of tourists but there are fears on the dropping water levels due to the deforestation in the Mau forest complex; the largest indigenous forest in East Africa. The migration is the world's greatest wildlife spectacle taking place between the open plains of the Serengeti and the Masaai Mara as the animals migrate to greener pastures as the seasons change and the circle of life and death continues.

A crocodile watches under a layer of weed a crowd gathered for feeding time at Darwin's Crocodile Farm located 100 kilometres south of Darwin May 10, 2005. A record number of crocodiles in Australia's famous Kakadu National Park, and larger more aggressive saltwater crocodiles, have put rangers on high alert as the giant animals attack boats and bite outboard motors. Crocodiles have been a protected species in the Northern Territory since 1971 and their number has now grown to around 70,000 saltwater crocodiles, up from 3,000 some 30 years ago. There have been only two recorded fatal crocodile attacks in Kakadu, 250 km (155 miles) east of the tropical city of Darwin when in 2002 a German tourist was killed while swimming in a waterhole. The other fatal attack was in 1987. But in March this year a 56-year-old fisherman was attacked when a four-meter (13 foot) crocodile jumped onto his boat and bit him on the head, park rangers said. The man survived with grazes and puncture wounds to his left arm and head.

A large male crocodile jumps into the water during feeding time at Darwin's Crocodile Farm located 100 kilometres south of Darwin May 10, 2005. A record number of crocodiles in Australia's famous Kakadu National Park, and larger more aggressive saltwater crocodiles, have put rangers on high alert as the giant animals attack boats and bite outboard motors. Crocodiles have been a protected species in the Northern Territory since 1971 and their number has now grown to around 70,000 saltwater crocodiles, up from 3,000 some 30 years ago. There have been only two recorded fatal crocodile attacks in Kakadu, 250 km (155 miles) east of the tropical city of Darwin when in 2002 a German tourist was killed while swimming in a waterhole. The other fatal attack was in 1987. But in March this year a 56-year-old fisherman was attacked when a four-meter (13 foot) crocodile jumped onto his boat and bit him on the head, park rangers said. The man survived with grazes and puncture wounds to his left arm and head.

Venezuela's best-known eco-tourism reserve and cattle ranch is fighting for its survival against Venezuelan government land reform. The Hato Pinero, a private 200,000-acre (80,000 hectare) property was declared as being public land and subject to confiscation after President Hugo Chavez's government made it a target for takeover to redistribute rural land to the poor.
