Oil spill clean up continues in Mauritius

Description

Pointe D'esny (Mauritius), Aug 14 (EFE/EPA).- (Camera: Laura Morosoli) Clean up works continue off the southeast coast of Mauritius as oil from the grounded ship is damaging protected marine ecosystems. According to Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth, who declared a state of an environmental emergency, most of the oil has been removed from the ship, however there are still fears the ship could break up spilling more oil into the ocean. Oil containment booms made by volunteers from human hair, straw and fabric have been set up in multiple locations to try and contain the oil slick.FOOTAGE OF THE SHIP AND THE DAMAGE.
