Photos: A Peru Oil Spill Causes an Environmental Emergency

The oil tanker Mare Doricum, which was loading crude oil at the La Pampilla Refinery in Lima, Peru, was about to unload when it sank. It exploded into the ocean with approximately 6,000 barrels. Initial reports blamed the incident on “abnormal waves” caused by the volcanic eruption in Tonga, but investigations are ongoing, and the government is “Sanctioning” the refinery. Repsol, a Spanish energy company, has brought hundreds of cleanup workers to the area. Over the weekend, volunteers and cleanup crews worked together to help wildlife affected, including seals and birds and fish.
