Oil Spill

I just found out that there's been an oil spill in the ocean off Southwest Puerto Rico.

Authorities are trying to track down the culprit. The spill happened near the Guanica Dry Forest (declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO) and La Parguera, home of a bioluminiscent bay. The area is rich in marine life, including coral reefs, turtles and other sea creatures. From what I have read so far, it seems they have not yet discovered any animals affected by the spill, but that does not mean the are not at risk.

I hope they find whoever is responsible and make them pay.

  1. Pay with money and make the CEO and Captain of that ship work knee deep in oil for weeks softly cleaning wildlife and cleaning up dead animals so they know the real price.
