Mauritius Oil

Donate using Liberapay

Back in October, there was a Major oil spill in Mauritius. Thanks to other news, this has largely been forgotton about.

This is the worst ecological disaster that the country has ever known.  

Before the leak was stopped, around 1000 tonnes of oil leaked from the ship and severely contaminated the precious shoreline and lagoons.

A reminder that this happened, an article from, back in October, by Ecowatch is here

Really good article, if there is a follow up to show what the long term consequences of this were I will post it.

For anyone unsure of where Mauritius is, there is a map below from Open Street Map.

This is an interesting little utility to draw an ASCII map on the terminal. It uses OpenStreetMap for the mapping data.

Open a terminal and enter

telnet mapscii.me

You should then be presented with a world map:

Further to my post yesterday. I have been contributing to the Open Street Map project [1] with a few updates for the Torbay area, these are detailed on my OSM profile [2].

These are mostly :

  • Adding website data for local schools
  • Updating other data such as the School name if this has changed or different from the map listing
  • Adding website data for other attractions

I am in the process of finding local attractions, business etc and adding links to their websites. This hopefully helps with promotion and helps the website develop generally.
