Somalia Marine Environments at the Mercy of African Solution Co.

Somalia has the longest shore line and could be the longer it is, the more surface area there is for damping of garbage by the visitors to the beaches. The main rivers, Jubba and Shabelle are carriers of affluent from various industrial plants, careless disposal of residential areas garbage, uphill erosion of plastic materials to the ocean as well as farm chemicals from nearby farms. All the garbage into the water sources pose danger to marine lives in various ways. Plastic paper bags have caused death of several aquatic life. Some animals and plants have been suffocated leading to their demise and disruption of food chains leading to extinction of most species. We humans are the cause for all the harm caused, but have you sat down to think that the plastic waste you damp inappropriately will come back to you from the water you drink and sea food we consume. Africa Solution has been on the front-line to clear the mess we create by cleaning the marine environments and surrounding habitats regularly. See their progress below.
