Garbage Washes Up on PG Coast

And while bird watching is a positive event, down south, there is environmental degradation. Tons of debris are washing up along the coast in Punta Gorda. As these pictures will show, the garbage consists of such things as plastic bottles, Styrofoam plates and even hospital waste stretching for as long as five miles along the coast. According to our colleague, Will Maheia, the wave of garbage originates mainly from Guatemala and Honduras and is the worst case of littering in recent times to affect the landscape. Maheia also told News Five that the dilemma is how to clean up the mess in time for this weekend’s activities in the south.
