Chosen Environment

My first chosen environment is natural disasters that occur regularly worldwide. The reason for this is because a recent natural disaster (forest fire) occurred nearby to my home on L’Éscalet beach in the Côte d’Azur, France.

I know this area very well and have taken previous photos of the area therefore being able to compare the before and after photos of the destruction made me think about how such a small thing (a cigarette but) can cause such a catastrophe. As well as knowing the area there are lots of news articles online about the forest fire therefore there is easy access to find correct information about the fire (cause, figures, how long it lasted, how it was stopped etc.)

Below is a screenshot I took from google maps to show you were L’Éscalet beach is located, near to St Tropez, (South East of France). I also added some photos I took whilst I was at the beach.
