Two pelicans landing on a tire

From a bay of plastic to a bay of wildlife

Although Boka (inlet or bay) Ascension is still not a pristine place, it is a place where sea turtles can graze again, pelicans and fish eagles can fish again.
When the people of Curacao dumped their waste in sea, all the plastic drifted in this bay and the bay got the nickname ‘Plastic bay’. Still there is a lot of waste drifting in from the Caribbean Sea, but volunteers clean up the bay regularly.
