Sad Find in World's Largest Sinkhole

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Wednesday, January 23, 2019

An expedition to the worlds biggest sinkhole has found something troubling.

A crew consisting of Richard Branson, Fabien Cousteau, and Erika Bergman found plastic bottles at the bottom of the Great Blue Hole.

The Great Blue Hole is a giant marine sinkhole off the coast of Belize. It lies near the center of Lighthouse Reef, a small atoll 70 km from the mainland and Belize City.

The hole is circular in shape, 318 m across and 124 m deep.
