About starrywazzoh

I'm a birder in Western Europe (UK, France & Spain) and Central Asia, with occasional visits elsewhere. Birding is my principal hobby and I dedicate as much time around work and other commitments.

    This way of life is disturbing everything. We have seen some shores of the Arctic Ocean full of plastic, throw from ships. Tourists tried to collect plastic into huge sacks, but in vain. New wawes brought it all the time more.

      Thanks for commenting and I totally agree. Too much garbage finds its way into the world’s oceans. I have huge sympathy for their predicament, but only today on TV it was reported that migrants are arriving at Mediterranean coasts and discarding life vests and other sea journey materials on beaches and simply walking away. Thousands of discarded vests lie for mile after mile on Europe’s beaches. If they are not cleared up (who by, I wonder?), guess where they will end up. This is merely one example.

      It is a matter of education but I wonder if this is ever achievable.
