So why is a sea of plastic permitted in a national park in the first place?

@martin   no, really,  is someone paying under the table?  I've also been reading about the huge avocado plantation that was built in the Algarve without permits, destroying areas of native plants. It's got to be happening in plain sight. No one is watching?

I’m sure somebody profits with it not only the company’s involved.

A great problem we have is that we may have good laws but we have few resources and few inspections, so sometimes companies take advantage of that, they build and start working and maybe in a few years they will receive a fine for having no permit or not being compliant with some laws, meanwhile they made profit so they are still ahead.
