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.
