Petitioning Sierra Leone's Minister of Tourism and Cultural Affairs Victoria Saidu Kamara

Stop unsustainable sand mining on the Western Area Peninsula, Sierra Leone

We think that destroying Sierra Leone's best beaches for short-term gain is a mistake. Here we're planning to save Salone's beaches.

Unlawful and unsustainable sand mining is destroying one of Sierra Leone's prize assets - her beaches. Future plans for a sustainable tourism strategy, local ecosystems and future livelihoods are being lost. Whichever way you look at it, it makes no sense.

We believe there is a better way to make use of Sierra Leone's beaches on the Western Peninsula for those that live there - protect them.
