When the beach clean-up is over

17. detsember 2018 - 15:04

Beach clean-ups have become a bittersweet sight to see. Although their impact is immediately seen, what happens after all the volunteers are gone?

Praia dos achados, or Finders-Keepers Beach, in Cape Verde, was the scene of an apparently successful beach clean-up just six months ago. This beach is one of the most important nesting places for Loggerhead Sea Turtles Caretta caretta. Last year, they made over 5000 nests here. The clean-up was supposed to help let these turtles continue to nest here, but it turns out that the actions of Cape Verde NGOs Biosfera and DNA, and our Portuguese partner SPEA were all in vain.[1] Upon returning to the beach six months later, they found that it had become a wasteland once again.

Open Letter by BirdLife Europe, the European Environmental Bureau and Greenpeace to the Heads of State and Government of the European Union Member States

To the Heads of States and Government of the European Union member states, gathering the 13 and 14 December for a European Council in Brussels, we say equally emphatically, heed his warning!

The evidence gets more and more overwhelming that the life supporting ecosystems of our planet are collapsing. Two of the biggest challenges facing mankind are the loss of biodiversity and climate change. The United Nations Biodiversity Conference that just took place in Sharm El Sheikh again showed the urgency to act. But prominent leaders remain shockingly silent.
