Sand mining renders land erosion in Kerala

Mining Kerala Sand

Kerala Sate is located in the southwestern tip of the Indian peninsula and extends between the latitude 10°00 North and longitude 76°25 East.

Kerala is bound by the Arabian Sea on the west, Karnataka on the North and Northeast, and Tamil Nadu on the east.The Arabian sea claims large chunks of the shore every season in Kerala.

Despite the accelerating loss of coastline, sand miners continue to gouge into the black mineral sand, speeding up the process.

A centuries old farming village on the Kerala coastline is on the verge of being washed away by the sea.
