Acacia sp.


Acacias are the most common tree in Sinai. This one sits at the opening of a coastal desert wadi and this plastic pollution is brought there by the wind or the flood waters.

Thank you, António. It is truly a global problem, both on land and at sea. Let's hope we can help raise awareness that leads to some global solutions.

Congratulations Bernadette, we've chosen this spotting and your Plastic Pollution mission to illustrate Earth Day 2018, which has a special focus on plastic:

"oday is #EarthDay! Earth Day originated in the US 48 years ago out of concern about the negative impacts of industrial development. It has now turned into a global event mobilizing over a billion people in 192 countries. The 2018 edition of Earth Day comes with a special focus on plastic pollution and its devastating effects on water and land ecosystems, impacting health for all living organisms.
Find out about the Earth Day 2018 Campaign to end plastic pollution:
Project Noah member Bernadette S. has started a mission raise awareness about the effects of plastic pollution on wildlife in the Sinai region of Egypt, as illustrated by this littered desert acacia tree.
Check out her mission:
From our archives you can also check out a blog post written 6 years featuring multiple spottings highlighting plastic pollution. Sadly, it remains highly relevant. "
