Our winners today 🍍

🥇 Copper Coast cruising, Moonta, Australia by @galenkp

Travelling isn't much of a thing right now...The virus and all...But rather sit around and mope we decided to be tourists in our own town today and headed off to a small town called Moonta, otherwise known as Australia's Little Cornwall! Moonta lies within a Council area called the Copper Coast, about 165 kilometres from the Capital City of Adelaide where I live. The area was notable for it's mining of copper and in the middle 1800's was actually the third largest copper producer in the world!

🥈 [Eng-Esp] Mausoleum of Dr. Knoche, an excursion of terror, La Guaira, Venezuela by @sofathana

Sometimes the mountains don't only keep beautiful roads, forests, hidden waterfalls, peaks, and elusive fauna, there are also enigmatic stories on their paths starring characters that seem fictional but were real, very real, this is the case of Dr. Knoche and his mausoleum. Before visiting this place, I had little information about this German doctor who arrived in Venezuela in the mid-19th century and who mummified bodies with an extraordinary formula that he invented and of which no trace remained.

🥉 Tour at Oboob Mangrove Garden (Eco-Park), Bantayan Island, Philippines by @ybanezkim26

As an archipelago, The Philippines is the sixth country in the world with the longest coastline (Nag, 2018). This means we are blessed with marine resources and ecosystems and that includes mangrove forests that are usually located in tidal flats. According to an article by Gaia Discovery, deforestation as an issue in the Philippines is focused only on upland forests while those that are happening in lowland areas, especially mangrove forests, often goes under the radar (Tacio, 2012). Mangrove forest areas in the country are rapidly dwindling because, in the recent past, people often regarded mangroves as unimportant. Often, they're cut down as a source of firewood.

      Ooooh! Thank you very much @lizanomadsoul and all the @pinmapple team! :)

      You are very welcome @sofathana 🙂👍

      Cool! Thank you so much!

      Very nice photos you have there @pinmapple! I just wonder, why the color of the water in the 3rd photo is green? Is it just on the reflection?

      It's my photo @gvincentjosephm. I don't know why, but maybe a reflection from the trees. The area is muddy and the water is grayish with the tint of green. Maybe due to the edit. 😂 Not really sure.
