41 tourists fined for stealing sand, seashells and rocks from Sardinia’s beaches

Customs police on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia issued fines of up to $3,600 to 41 people who in recent days tried to leave the island with a total of 100 kilograms of sand, seashells and beach rocks. The law aims to prevent the cumulative effect of removing sand and shells by the millions of tourists who flock each year to the island, renowned for long stretches of pristine sandy beaches.

Why do I feel like a coordinated action between 41 people should be appropriately named “The Sand Bandits?”

This is why the oceans are rising, not global warming and climate change (even though climate change happens every three months).

This is actually damaging a lot of beaches around the world. Just like tourists who have to touch everything. Tourists are the worst.

I can understand taking a shell or two for memory, but 100kg among 40 people is a bit ridiculous.
