Requiem for the Environment!

You will really lament with me when you see the photo of an unusual mangrove forest (this is also from the place described in the lower post). It is not unusual in the world anymore, it is a common site even in remote beaches. The sea is a common property of the world. Wherever the current goes, debris from other areas go with it. No matter how responsible some people are in the other side of the ocean, they will not be spared of the rest of the world's garbage. It is just but time that they will also reap what others inflicted. It really is disturbing. Can you visualize what the organisms under the water surface are experiencing! We should really start acting now!
Also, the very nice multicolored stones at the beach of Malimatoc, Mabini, Batangas are being plucked by nearby residents for buyers from the cities. They sell it by truckloads. The stones are used for beautifying their houses, garden landscapes, and many other purposes in the cities. I can only feel depressed at the possibility of loosing these stones from the presently beautiful beach. The next generations will not be able to see such beautiful stones anymore.

Please view large to appreciate the details.


  1. I know what you mean. I have tons of pictures of Philippine mangroves filled with plastics and garbage. The sight is heartbreaking.

  2. yes Karmi, really heartbreaking to see the sight. I intend to get these pictures from different sites in the Philippines. I wonder if some DENR people will respond to it. Thanks for your visit.
