Flip-flops, fishing gear pile up at Aldabra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; Malavika Vyawahare; Monga Bay

The Aldabra coral atoll is a place of mythical beauty, uninhabited and so lost to the world that chartered flights and boats are the only way to get there. But humans have still found a way to leave their mark. Flip-flops from all over the planet are piling up on the atoll. During a five-week cleanup campaign in 2019, volunteers removed 60,000 plastic slippers.
