He volunteered for the clean-up of the sea and has now been hired by Repsol to continue the task. Some of those most affected by the spill end up putting their health at risk in the cleanup in order to earn money they cannot get usual fishing activities. A tanker unloading crude oil at the Repsol operated La Pampilla refinery was hit by a strong wave following the volcanic eruption in Tonga. The ship lost approximately 11,900 barrel oil just off the coast of Lima. The Peruvian government declared an environmental emergency after announcing that 21 beaches on the Pacific Coast were contaminated by the oil spill.Locations:Lima-Pacific Ocean-Peru-South AmericaDate:3 Feb, 2022Credit:© Musuk Nolte / GreenpeaceMaximum size:8256px X 6192pxKeywords:Barrels-Beaches-Cleaning-Climate (campaign title)-Day-Dirty-Disasters-Hard hats-KWCI (GPI)-Manual workers-Oceans (campaign title)-Oil (fossil fuel)-Oil spills-One person-Outdoors-Pollution-Protective clothing-Repsol-RocksShoot:Peru Oil SpillA tanker unloading crude oil at the Repsol operated La Pampilla refinery was hit by a strong wave following the volcanic eruption in Tonga.
