Nalandhoo - An island under destruction

Nalandhoo in Shaviyani Atoll is one of the most beautiful islands in the Maldives. Environmental activists are raising alarm on the hazardous harvest of an alien species of sea cucumber on the island. The island has undergone considerable modification and the lagoons have allegedly been affected by the discharge of toxic compounds. In addition to Nalandhoo, a number of mangroves in the Maldives are also under threat from a commercially harvested alien species of sea cucumber.
