Thank you for your participation in #EngGame today. I hope we all learned something. Before I go, I have a message for all of you. :)

Indonesia has so many beautiful beaches. If you live near the beach, visit it, enjoy it, preserve it, & cherish it while you have it. :)

Beaches in big cities in Indonesia are usually too polluted to be enjoyed. Where is the pollution from? The mainland, rivers, waters.

So if you still want to enjoy beaches near you & meet those beautiful creatures, it’s very important to keep your environment clean. :)
