Trincomalee, the name of the place says it all for many. A beach getaway at Nilaveli, a soulful retreat to ease your senses and a peaceful spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

What more could you ask for, right? However, as we ventured to find out, Trinco’s future doesn’t look all that positive especially when one of the world’s natural harbours is fast diminishing right under our very noses.

When we saw bus loads of people pouring in during Vesak and the fact that there was litter strewn all over Nilaveli beach, it was appalling that ours was a country that is inhabited by nature-loving people.

While only a handful of people have been good enough to pick and throw the litter into the bins, we can see many having a gala time, dancing to baila music disturbing the peace and even littering without a moment’s hestitation. On a positive note, some of the armed forces and military did keep an eye on the people but they should have warned them not to litter around when there were prominently displayed green garbage cans which the people could use.

But then again you were always harassed by the boatmen to go on a ride to Pigeon Island and had to brush away harrasing strangers.

Speaking about Pigeon Island itself, the area is a sorry sight. Rumours have been circulating that the local government office is planning to make maximum use of the island, which is home to several endemic and endangered species of corals. There are plans to make stalls and food outlets that would not only tamper with the beauty of the island but also cause destruction to Mother Nature.

Even still, while snorkelling on Pigeon Island one can see plastic refuse strewn everywhere and it’s upto the swimmers to clean up the sea. If the government makes stringent nature conservation standards for the hotels in the East, then many eyes would open to the plight of Trincomalee.

It should be said one of the most beautiful beaches in Trinco, Marble Beach is still preserved and in pristine condition because of the mere fact that the Air Force still keeps it under their supervision. However, after the war, the armed forces should have thought twice before handing over Pigeon Island in a sustainable manner where people realise the consequences of littering and destroying nature.

Hence, we could protect our nature’s bounties but also enlighten our people and future generations about it. So give Trinco a better tomorrow and be mindful of leaving only footprints, taking photographs and memories back
