Living testimony of human greed for selfie development at the expense of climate future, a beautifully shallow and calm beach in east coast of India (Gopalpur, Odisha) for common citizens is slowly and steadily converted into a high-sea fishing & dredging port for private profiteers.
Pollution, logging, dredging, draining of wetlands, and coastal development are all factors that lead to marine habitat destruction. Dredging does not stop erosion, and so one beach reclamation project may be one of many that a beach experiences over the course of its use. There is also the issue of habitat destruction. By removing vast quantities of sand from the sea floor, dredgers may disturb the flora and fauna.
