There is big news on the Sargassum Belt and how Caribbean beaches are bombarded by tons of the seaweed as it is deposited onshore. I've witnessed it myself first hand and I've seen the reactions from tourists who are not happy to see trucks working 10 hours a day to remove the Sargassum from the beach, which they thought was supposed to be peaceful.
Ed Yong wrote a great article on the subject for the Atlantic and I covered it on this episode. Take a listen while you are on the go.
Would Sargassum on a beach prevent you from visiting beaches in the Caribbean? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.
