Sea of garbage

Rubbish

Though Banggi island possesses its own unique beauty in the vast ocean, evergreen forests and beautiful coastlines, a fact of life is that any human settlement will generate waste and often it finds its way into the environment, moreso without modern sanitation treatment. Such is the case of many kampung air (water villages) around Sabah and no exception here, human waste is desposed directly into the water via wooden toilets atop the ocean surface and rubbish is often tossed into the open. Banggi, 2005.

jlchannel: Nope but there are other great spots relatively untouched on the island that's why they're setting up the Tun Mustapha marine park in future
