World Environment Day | World Oceans Day: Toes in the (clean, Dutch) sand

 

cropped-cropped-cropped-img_53491.jpg The image of a boy in the sand maybe ‘so what’ for some…. but, for me at least, it raises a wide range of troubling environmental issues!

*China has (arguably) few clean sand beaches – certainly not near Shanghai. The closest proper beach to us? Thailand! This image (above) was taken by me in the Netherlands – Scheveningen : http://denhaag.com/en/scheveningen

*How do you keep a beach clean – or maybe more to the point … clean it up? Refer to the Marine Conservation Society : http://www.mcsuk.org/beachwatch/

*Marine debris – all the stuff … mainly rubbish, but also some of which can be re-used – then becomes a BIG issue. There are many info sources – here’s one: http://www.marinedebris.engr.uga.edu

*Sand & beaches: How did the sand get there : see Resources section
