Lake Ontario, USA - Charles Henderson
My Watermark is Lake Ontario near Newfane, New York.
I grew up swimming in the lake and I didn’t realise that water wasn't supposed to be that polluted and have that much garbage on the shore until I had gone to the beaches in Lake Michigan and the Bruce Peninsula, and it was kind of an eye-opener.
When I came home I was disgusted by the sheer volume of garbage and plastics that were washed up on the shoreline. I want to help protect the beauty and natural habitat of the area.
