Mangroves and garbage


It is hard to see, but this mangrove’s roots are entangled with garbage, and lots of it. We took a trip down to the Palisadoes area, and while it is beautiful with a strong, cool breeze, the garbage is heartbreaking. Every kind of litter you can imagine, on the shoreline, encroaching into the mangrove roots. Without these trees, the ecosystem will fall apart. My daughter kept asking why people would throw their garbage everywhere, and I didn’t have an answer for her.
