What is wrong with this snails?mad snail, gary

Why do they come ashore,

where they decease dreadful,

dried out by the merciless sun

by the thousands?

We don’t want to blame the algeas, do we? Although it is a fact that this phenomenon occures with the algeabloom on its peak. It is also known, that these kind of algeas divest oxygen from the water. So, is it maybe the lack of oxygen that drives these animals out of their habitat.

Algae Season Again

Since two weeks the algaes bloom in Boracay. Swiming is not just a pleasure anymore for those who are used to crystal clear waters. Also a stroll along the famous White Beach feels sometimes more like a stroll on a soggy, foul smelling surface.

For a nice swim one has to stay at least 150 meters offshore.

But for Chinese People this is still Paradise. Conditions in China are much, much worse. And yet, obviously some can even enjoy disgusting conditions like these! Hopfully Boracay will never get there. But if nobody cares, or nobody sees a problem anymore, who knows….
