Over the past few months, we’ve seen all kinds of items being brought out from the sea after one of the many organised sea clean-ups by local NGOs. Tires. plastic, cars and anything you can imagine … the thing is, they usually have to dive a bit deep into the swimming zone to find these items.
Nathaneal Theuma didn’t have to look that far to find a shocking sight in front of his eyes, as he was about to go for a leisurely swim.
“Qawra, boathouses area. I went for a swim, and look what I see just close to the ladder! A huge refrigerator thrown into the sea!!!!!😤😱😨” He writes.
Many were outraged at the sheer sight of this, with many users commenting “Shame” and “Disgusting” directly on the post.
“It seems the old Maltese adage hasn’t changed – min bieb il-barra mhux tieghi,” another wrote.
I think what we’re most disappointed by is the fact that over the past couple of months, Malta’s seas have taken a breath of fresh air – we’ve been seeing dolphins and turtles make a reappearance, and clean-ups have proved to be very successful – only to find a sight like this greet you on your feed over the weekend.
