saving starfish

we were astonished when we saw a couple at the beach last weekend grabbing a starfish from the sea and placing it in their backpack…

it might be very tempting for some to take such a beautiful creature as a souvenir back home – but what if everyone decides to do the same?

when we see them grabbing another one, once again we ask if the starfish was dead or alive – we have been living here for a while and have never found a dead starfish on the sea.

we nicely explained that there is a lot of work done by decr in the island to protect marine life, and how the increase of tourists is great for the economy but dangerous if they don’t respect marine life…they then placed both starfish back under water.
