Thank you Jacquelin, for this information. Since the time that such accidents happen, I do not understand why the authorities do nothing. Absolutely nothing. Statements of intent. But no real decision-making intervention. And it's the same in all waters of the world. Territorial waters and international waters. It's disgusting.

It is an absolute disgrace what man
has done to destroy the oceans & the sea life there.

Only when it is all acknowleged as
destroyed will we say what happened?

Truly man is an idiot
for his own selfish wants.

Save the mountains.....Plant trees for life.....
