In collaboration with Wataniya Telecom and Biodiversity East I was taken on a trip to some of Kuwait’s islands. What I saw was an environment underwater that was so lively and beautiful you’d think only a trip to the Maldives would give you that experience. Sadly, the beauty of coral reefs will die if we don’t start preserving the environment and raise awareness on the issues that damage the coral reef.
I was discussing with a reader this morning how horrid Kuwait’s beach is and people should be ashamed polluting everywhere. Well it gets worse, fisherman have been dumping fishing nets onto coral reefs where fishing is prohibited. Fortunately many baby sharks have been saved after getting tangled.[Source]
I’ve always had the question where does trash go after garbage trucks take it? The answer might be slightly different from what we see in this documentary. The documentary shows all the pollution we are making as humans but offers solutions as well. There should be more awareness regarding recycling items, we’re still using non-degradable bags to begin with.
“Nature functions by building up and breaking down, building up and breaking down. We keep putting things into the environment that down break down.”
This photo accurately demonstrates my thoughts on Kuwait’s beach. I know there are a lot of campaigns that help clean the beach but why do people throw their junk on the beach to begin with. There was a shocking photo of what Sulaibikhat beach looked like. There should be more awareness and understanding that litter belongs in the garbage.
The numerous animal deaths are starting to really concern me. We first read about the 40,000 dead crabs pushed ashore by the sea due to the change in the sea’s temperature as it keeps getting colder. Then it’s the thousands of dead fish that die because of water getting warmer. When water is warm is uses up more oxygen, making some fish die, those that are not use to rapid change in their environment.
Now it’s 13.7 million birds dying in the U.S every single day. Researchers are still trying to find the cause of all this. It most likely has to do with global warming as it always has. But when will this be considered alarming. When will companies act together and reduce pollution for crying out loud. I think it’s when humans start dying by the dozens, a bit too late I would imagine.[Source]
