The latest case with shipwreck pollution happened on the coast of southern Madagascar with Turkish vessel Gulser Ana that carried 39000 tons of raw phosphates, 568 tons of fuel, 66 tons of diesel and 8000 liters of lubricant, most of which was slowly released into the Indian Ocean, doing serious environmental damage to marine wildlife. Sadly, environmental disasters like this one happen every once in a while, adding more and more to global pollution of our oceans.
Imagine the ugliness of this sight: toxic substances like gasoline, diesel, heavy fuels, oils, battery acids, metals like lead and copper leak, spill into our seas and oceans with many marine creatures slowly dying in agonizing pain. It's not exactly a pretty picture but sadly this ugly picture is constantly happening in our oceans and our seas.
Shipwreck pollution - Great environmental threat
