Yesterday we visited the lagoon again, trying to find some answers and hoping for good news. We were not expecting this at all.
We found the fish that two days before were struggling for air.
They were dead.
Some of them at the bottom, some of them on the shore. A few small ones still fighting, breathing heavily and swimming on their sides.
The smell was very strong and the sight was sad, sad, sad.
Still nothing on the news. I don't want this to just dissappear. Last night I talked to my friend Yolanda, she's a young student and an activist for conservation of native flora and fauna. I met her a few months ago at the Wildlife Brigade. She said she was going to get a couple of friends from the university to go there and test the water, collect samples, and try to find out what is going on.
I recorded a short video too.
