A biologist from Alicante publishes images in which thousands of remains of wipes, handkerchiefs and plastics can be seen in one of the coves in the town: “There are no words to define what I was seeing”
Thousands of microplastics, handkerchiefs and fish tangled among the remains of wipes at the bottom of the Alicante sea. This is the sad reality that a biologist from Alicante shows in a video recorded in the cove of Alí, in front of the Palm Grove, and that has already gone viral after being viewed by more than 92,000 people.
Alberto, a biologist from Alicante known on Instagram as @thewildpassport, was preparing to dive in La Cala de Alí to record a video about marine life in the area , but the images he managed to capture have left more than one speechless. And it is that instead of fish they found a very different reality: these of wipes, papers, microplastics, weights, hooks and other fishing materials.
“The fish were trying to swim among the remains and I even found one entangled in a washcloth, it seemed alive but when I broke it it fell to the bottom without life,” Alberto says in the video. “We cannot allow this, when will we realize the barbarities that we commit? Only we are responsible for our actions. There are no more excuses, we are running out of time. Please do not throw paper or wipes down the toilet or leave any farewell when go to the beach, “he adds.
The video, which is being shared by thousands of people on social networks, is accompanied by a highly applauded allegation, which we reproduce below:
“We never ask you to share our photos or videos but this is unacceptable, we have to raise awareness of what is happening. I wanted to dive to get some images of the marine life in La Cala de Ali, in Alicante, but look what I found. Just wipes, tissues and plastics everywhere. It’s one of the most horrible things I’ve ever seen, I couldn’t believe it was in the city I live in. We have to change, we can’t continue to destroy the environment this way. We have to realize that killing the oceans is killing ourselves. No one will save the planet for us and we ran out of time. We are responsible for our own actions, just think twice before doing something that will harm the only planet where we can live, like throwing things down the toilet or throwing trash on the beach. Let’s change our minds and create a new normal, it’s the only way we can give nature a chance to recover. “

•🇬🇧 ⚠️ PLEASE SHARE ⚠️ We never ask you to share my photos or videos but this is unacceptable, we have to rise awareness of what is happening. I wanted to dive to get some footage of the sea live in La Cala de Ali (Alicante) but look what I found. Just wipes, tissues and plastics everywhere. It is one of the most horrible things I’ve ever seen, I couldn’t believe it was in my hometown. We must change, we can’t keep destroying the environment this way. We must realise that killing the oceans is killing ourselves. No one will save the planet for us, and we are running out of time. We are responsible of our acts, just think twice before doing something that will harm the only planet where we can live, like throwing things to the WC or littering at the beach. Let’s change our mind and create a new normality, it’s the only way we can give nature a chance to recover. /•🇪🇸 ⚠️ POR FAVOR COMPARTE ⚠️ Nunca pedimos que compartas nuestras fotos o vídeos pero esto es inaceptable, tenemos que crear conciencia de lo que está sucediendo. Quería bucear para obtener algunas imágenes de la vida marina en La Cala de Ali (Alicante) pero mira lo que encontré. Solo toallitas, pañuelos y plásticos por todas partes. Es una de las cosas más horribles que he visto, no podía creer que fuera en la ciudad donde vivo. Tenemos que cambiar, no podemos seguir destruyendo el medio ambiente de esta manera. Tenemos que darnos cuenta de que matar los océanos es matarnos a nosotros mismos. Nadie salvará el planeta por nosotros y nos quedamos sin tiempo. Somos responsables de nuestros propios actos, solo piénsatelo dos veces antes de hacer algo que dañará al único planeta donde podemos vivir, como tirar cosas por el water o tirar basura en la playa. Cambiemos de opinión y creemos una nueva normalidad, es la única forma en que podemos darle a la naturaleza la oportunidad de recuperarse.
