    🧟Some foreign companies dump their waste into the sea in the name of an accident with the indirect permission of other government. It's Has long been conducted with the intention of harming nature and living creatures 🧒🐳

    I wonder if the shipping lines and their insurance will pay for costs incurred for repairing the ecology. They should. Or both, shipping lines and those ships using the insurance company, should be banned from using those sea routes ever again, no matter under whose flag they sail, no matter how many times they change the ships or their company name.

    The Ocean has turned into a place for Humans to interfere in its ecosystem... Just look around and see every year the rising level of the sea..

    Today it's the world environment day 🌱 Sad to see that. I hope a solution will be find for a healthy environment. Others countries should help Sri-Lanka. Take care of the environment must be a priority, no matter the country.
