TIMESINDONESIA, BANYUWANGIAbrasion is a phenomenon of beach erosion caused by waves and ocean currents which can cause damage to the coast. This has happened to most of the beaches in Banyuwangi. This issue endanger the life of the local turtles.

Banyuwangi has been well known with its beach. Some of the beaches has not been touched by the people. This where the sea turtle took a chance to lay their eggs at this beaches.

Let's say, Cemara Beach. Each year  there hundreds of sea turtle come by and lay their eggs at the beach. However, they have some problem to find those lovely creatures laying their egg at the beach recently for the abrasion.

The abrasion was spotted since May 5, 2020. "The turtles might having problem to reach the shore of Cemara Becah, they then decided to move to another beach for this reason," a staff at Fishery Deparyment of Banyuwangi, Naang Budi said.

Anang also said that the abrasion not only endanger the life of the sea turtle but also the locals sustainability.  The locals who rely their life from the tourism could lost their business.

He also appeals the locals to work together with the government in tackling the issue. "The locals should optimize the use of vegetation, and plant more coral reef to keep away the wave that cause abrasion," he added.

In a diction, not only the abrasion will be tackled,  the corals will also helps them to hail more schools of fishes to the beach. It will bring back the Tourism industry to the beach.

For your information, there had been found around 5.058 sea turtle eggs in 2019. Sadly the number were decreasing in 2020 to only 2.600. The local community especially those who lives around Cemara beach Banyuwangi had tried their best to keep away the abrasion.(*)
