Focus: Beach conservation/clean-up.
This strip of beach was once golden sands but is now covered in litter making it dangerous for tourists. An oil spillage off the coast is also affecting local wildlife and making the sea off-limits for swimmers.
The Black Trident sank off the coast of Eco-island, its tanks ruptured by the jagged stones of the reef. Over time, the thick black oil has spilled out into the ocean, and has started to wash ashore, along with the sea life that it has sadly affected.
- The island inhabitants will need to understand the dangers of oil pollution to sea and beach wildlife.
