toxic menace…

Summer has arrived boasting a sparkling sea, amazing scents of orange blossoms and a gorgeous nighttime cicada chorus. Happy Beach is calm. But under the surface are some depressing discoveries.

The beach trash predominantly consists of plastic, aluminium cans, styrofoam and fishing nets/ lines. A few fabrics, glass and shoes add to the collection. These all contribute to serious threats to marine life – either due to consumption or entrapment. But an other level of endangerment comes from the toxins that directly end up in the seas.
