Giant sand sculpture on DB beach today
- Written by arounddb
Greenpeace organisers and around 150 volunteers built this morning a giant sand sculpture on Tai Pak beach. The sculpture, measuring 8 metres' long and 1 metre high, represents a vaquita porpoise.
The sculpture was built to honour "International Save the Vaquita Day". Greenpeace organisers and volunteers are urging the HK Government to take action to help protect the vaquitas by cracking down on the smuggling of the totoaba fish. In fact, the vaquitas are being driven to extinction because there is bycatch in gillnets meant for catching totaba.
