Har­bour needs to be cher­ished

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

It was heart­en­ing to read the letters from the pupils of Pare­mata School (May 13).

Their con­cern for the health of the har­bour re­vealed they had been fol­low­ing the re­ported high ton­nage of plas­tic rubbish and dis­carded car tyres that pol­luted the har­bour.

They ex­pressed their dis­may and urged a pos­i­tive re­sponse to pre­serve our lovely har­bour en­vi­ron­ment.

The at­ti­tudes of those who feel free to toss their rubbish into our har­bour brings shame on us all and de­mands a de­ter­mined ef­fort to tackle the prob­lem.

To fail in that would be dis­as­trous.
