This photo was taken during one of the Turtle release events we attending to during this year. The event was followed by a clean up session on the beach where we found this pile of lost fishing nets. This lump of dangerous material causes damage to all sort of living sea creatures and this photo shows how invasive our behavior is. It contrasts with the beautiful natural landscape of the place.

This photo was taken during one of the Turtle release events we attending to during this year. Three sea turtles were released after a period of rehabilitation they had to pass through due to injures we humans caused with our fishing practices and dumped waste. It was a very emotional experience for all of us. In this photo, the turtle is like taking a photo for us to keep as a momento of the occasion. On the other hand it also shows our invasion of the turtle territory where even during its release we had to interfere in some way or another. In fact we noticed that the turtle had to change its course towards the sea since it was suspicious of the strange object.

Shame on us shows a snap shop of a too common situation in our countryside where irresponsible individuals just dump the waste that they do not want without realizing that damage that they are causing. Photo taken limits of Siggiewi.

This photo was taken in the countryside close to Siggiewi. I was surprised to find this type of waste since it was not common trash but rather good home stuff like shoes and cake tins. It seems that someone was clearing a house and just dumped all its contents in the countryside. He or she didn’t care less.
