<Hyun-Joon Ko/Presentation Critic> In
Mauritius, where an environmental emergency was declared due to the worst oil spill accident, the people even donated hair to protect the sea.
The emerald sea turned black. On the 25th of last month, a Japanese cargo ship from China to Brazil was stranded on the southeast coast of Mauritius, and oil spills began on the 6th.
Nearly 4,000 tons of heavy oil were loaded on the ship, of which 1,180 tons of fuel tanks were known to have been damaged.
Coral reefs spread widely in the vicinity of the ship's aground, and rare endangered creatures such as water birds live.
As a result, the Prime Minister of Mauritius declared an environmental emergency on the 7th, and many Mauritius citizens, including students and environmental activists, began decontamination.
Not a few people even cut their hair and donate, because the hair of animals like hair is known to be effective in adsorbing oil in water.
To this end, hairdressers across Mauritius have also provided free haircuts. The oil spill has now stopped, but observations that the ship could be split in half makes it impossible to rule out the possibility of further spills.
Wouldn't we have similar experiences in Taean? It would be great if we could regain the shape of a healthy sea like Taean as soon as possible without additional spillage. Please tell me the next news.
