|Beach at Bavang Jamal, Kudat|
The Kudat Turtle Conservation Society (KTCS) together with Raleigh Sabah Society are going to need volunteers to help clean the beaches on November 20 to 26, 2017 around Bavang Jamal Beach, Kudat. They need as many people as possible to make their program a success. Whenever we saw our beaches and all those rubbish, I am sure deep inside us we said, "why don't the government do something about those thrashes?" Well fella, our government isn't going to do anything about it! They feel they have other more important agenda to consider. Not cleaning beaches and towns! So it all falls back to us to help. We have to start somewhere. If we looked around we would be overwhelmed and do not know where to start. Too many of our beaches and towns are full of rubbish! So let start here, where they are already societies willing to organize. All we have to do is answer their call and help out. In the meantime, let's take a break and enjoy spending our time in Kudat where the place is peaceful and serene; and fresh seafood for dinner!
|Wastes at the beach|
Working together among volunteers to cleanup unwanted rubbish can make a difference. It can boost the citizen's pride and believe it or not; can also help to reduce crime. According to the Nebraska Extension in Lancaster County website, "time and time again, in cities across the nation, neighborhood crime rate dropped after cleanup and beautification efforts!" Volunteers can bring rakes, brooms, shovels, thrash bags, gloves and first-aid kits. To encourage community spirit, they could bring refreshments to be shared among the volunteers. Please remember that these wastes are creating problems for our marine creatures. Many turtles died after consuming plastic bags floating around the sea because they thought the plastic bags are jellyfish, their food.
What should we do with these wastes? Well, there is an interesting technology which could recycle these plastic thrashes into pellets. These pellets in turn could be used to make asphalt. Asphalt is one of the ingredients for road building. The government should subsidized the recycling plants that ventured into this sort of project. It is said that the asphalt used to resurface roads made from plastic wastes are much better and could last longer compared to those from the petroleum base. But it only takes far-sighted government to see the benefit of this technology.
