Guanabara Bay Rio de Janeiro_09rf00148.jpg
Aerial view of Guanabara Bay, on its western shore lies the city of Rio de Janeiro, and on its eastern shore the city of Niteroi - it is crossed by the Rio-Niteroi Bridge, there is heavy boat and ship traffic, and The Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport ( on Governador Island in background ) is located on its shores. The bay has been heavily impacted by urbanization, deforestation, and pollution of its waters with sewage, garbage, and oil spills.
