The Throw-Away Mentality Has to Go!

After some days of marvelling at the beauty of nature I returned to Manado, and to my shock and terror witnessed the boat literally dodging piles of trash floating in the ocean. This trash comes from Manado and partly ends up in Bunaken, where it pollutes the corals and disturbs the marine life. What a disillusion - yet another paradise is threatened with extinction…
