No More Puka Shells at Puka Beach

Not my first time at Puka Beach, Boracay_ I easily noticed the absence of puka shells in the island. The way I remembered this island was floored by the white pretty puka shells, so abundantly scattered around the beach.

We bought some drinks in a local sari-sari store there and asked the local why there weren't any puka shells in the beach anymore? He said they were out in the stores all over the country. Made into/ commercialized as jewelries, accessories, ornaments , furniture , etc.

He said once in a while, they, the local islanders could still find and pick some puka shells which although still seen around the island were no longer that abundant as they were before.
