Soil Erosion Visible on Haiti Coast
Soil erosion running off into the ocean is clearly visible on the coast in Montrouis northwest of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The silt running into the ocean kills mangroves, coral reefs, and other marine life close to the shore making life for the fishermen very difficult. They must go out further and further in the sea in order to find fish.
