they mean no harm to the sharks!?!

“Nothing that will damage the environment is going to happen there. There is no chance” said the son of the developer of Baa Atoll Hanifaru. According to him there is not going to be any platforms for the sea planes to land. And the island isn’t going to be developed for agriculture. Three greenhouses that uses hydroponics is going to be built there plus a beach house.

Developers are known for plundering the natural environment of the places they are constructing. So we should all keep an eye what happens and is going to happen at that place. Just in case…

For those of you who have no idea where Hanifaru is and what we are talking about please check out

Slaughtering of the Sharks

A picture is worth a thousand words. A few thousand worth of stuff is down below. See for yourself! LOCATION: H.dh Kulhudhufushi.










a few questions come into my mind
  • is it really worth catching all these sharks?
  • what kind of affect has it already created in the environment?
  • what kind of impact does it have on other fisheries and tourism?
  • how many sharks is caught per year?
  • who is behind all this?
  • who is looking our for all of this? where are all the laws to stop this?
  • what can be done?
  • is it too late?

Many thanks to the photographer who photgraphed all of this!
