Continuing to do my duty as a conservationist
The explosion of plastic pollution along our shorelines is just a symptom of the larger problem. Our oceans are bursting with foreign bodies originating mostly from land based industries; studies claim 80%, in fact.
A lot of people ask me why recycling isn't effective enough. There are various reasons including incorrect disposal, litter washing away in storm water, and the fact that many plastics are in fact down-cycled not RE-cycled.
Recycling is admirable, but if you really wish to make a positive impact, look to alternatives; simply reduce your plastic consumption altogether 🏼.
Yesterday our team went out to monitor our Grey Seal population - We counted 12 individuals, a few of which were rather large and appeared ready to give birth, just like the Seal on the left of this picture
The Great Bird Island is the site of one of the most important conservation projects in the Caribbean as conservationists carry on the fight to save the endangered, world famous Antigua Racer Snake.
Learn about this in Episode 2 of the Shore Explores on our Facebook Page.
Hurry hurry ,
In the middle of a scurry,
No time to look slick,
Towards the smell, the sound,the motion,
That I know is home.
That I know is mine.
Toward the ever vast and rumbling
Of my sweetest Ocean.
