THE MOST POLLUTED BEACH IN THE WORLD

THE MOST POLLUTED BEACH IN THE WORLD
    Henderson Island in the Pitcairn Islands south of the Pacific Ocean






    Henderson Island (Henderson Island, Makatea by its aboriginal name in Maori), is a tectonic elevation atoll located in the South Pacific Ocean, part of the British settlement of Pitcairn since its annexation. in 1902. Two other islands, Oeno and Ducie Island, are part of it.




    Paradoxically, this island is also one of the most isolated in the world, at least 5000 km away from the first piece of land. One might think that the place is less exposed to the dangers of human presence. EH BAH NO. The small island would be one of the most polluted in the world, the researchers estimate that its beaches accumulate on average 3500 wastes stranded per day.


    Lost in the South Pacific, this heavenly confetti has become, in the space of thirty years, date at which UNESCO has included in the world heritage of humanity, a real trap for plastic waste. Henderson Island has always benefited from a rich marine fauna because of its position on the passage of a large gyratory current. Today, the flip side of the coin, this gigantic whirlwind of ocean currents pours here an accumulation of plastic debris produced on Earth ... without stopping.
