A Panama-flagged bulk carrier, MV Wakashio has reportedly run aground on a reef off Mauritius while on its way to Brazil, from China on Saturday, 25th of July, 2020. A local coast guard first got the wing of it as it tried to warn the ship’s captain that it was moving dangerously close to the shore to no avail. There are 20 crew members on board.
Locals are worried about the ship’s presence causing any sort of environmental disaster. Wakashio had been carrying about 3800 metric tons of fuel onboard but was reportedly empty under ballast on its way to pick up cargo from Tubaro, Brazil. No oil leaks have been reported.
There are 20 crew members on board.
Some call it a floating city, a flotilla of 260 mostly Chinese fishing vessels near the Galapagos archipelago that is stirring diplomatic tension and raising worries about the threat to sharks, manta rays and other vulnerable species in waters around the UNESCO world heritage site.
