Mysterious dolphin deaths linked to oil spill in Mauritius
AUGUST 31, 2020
The ship, MV Wakashio, ran aground on a coral reef on the southern tip of Mauritius in July. Officials in Mauritius have confirmed the death of 40 dolphins in the area at the time of writing. Unfortunately, Mauritius was not prepared for such a catastrophe, and efforts to clean up the oil have been slow. On Monday, August 24, Greenpeace Africa and Japan joined a local organization, Dis Moi, in writing a joint letter to the Government of Mauritius calling for transparency.
