Fly like an Eagle

Thilafushi is an artificial island built from reclaimed land that receives waste generated in the Maldives. It is estimated that at least 330 tonnes of waste is brought to Thilafushi every day, most of which comes from Malé, the nation’s capital city. Because the waste is used to continue the land reclamation process and increase the size of the island, the area of Thilafushi is growing about 1 square meter (11 square feet) per day.
