A video of a large amount of raw sewage being dumped into Acapulco Bay is causing outrage among environment and marine-life lovers around the world.
The video was taken from a hotel room balcony…
The sewage discharge — also known as blackwater — comes after locals were enjoying the clear waters that developed from the mandatory pandemic lockdown that included the closure of beaches.
Unfortunately, there’s now a strong, noxious smell around the area.
Blackwater is dangerous and can lead to serious illnesses or death — even with marine life.
The Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources started an investigation to determine the origin because discharge of sewage is considered a federal crime in Acapulco.
At Karmagawa and SaveTheReef, we’re using our platforms to speak out against this because it’s not only irresponsible — it’s flat-out disrespectful to the environment and the beautiful creatures that rely on their surroundings to live.
And be sure to show them this powerful video …
