    Is this one-off incident and happened for no reason or normal occurrence? who is looking after beach environment. Locals? Rotary Lions volunteers, Hoteliers? Local Government???

    What goes in comes out, it should surprise no one! Sri Lanka is documented as one of the top polluting countries of the seas with polythene and plastic waste!

    Welcome to tourism and selfish patriotism.

    This because the daily beach cleanup has not been happening since curfew started. Due to the high levels of pollution in the sea, daily cleanups are necessary. Citizens blame the government for not cleaning.. but it is the citizens who cause this by dumping garbage into the waterways.

    People should be educated about the harm this does to marine life,these issues should be addressed first in schools,from toddlers ti teenagers to adults.This should be adaily reminder,as people dont care, Keep the city clean adverts on tv,to show more awarenessof the env they live in.Those who are caught dumping garbage should b fined.Each individual is responsible to keep his or her env clean.Even outside shops,eateries, the drains are clogged and it stinks.People dont seem to care how sad
