For several days now they have been going to the area to see how the contamination continues to spread, with scarce clean-up work being done by Repsol. 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 6192pxRestrictions:EDITORIAL USE ONLY, NO FUNDRAISING, NO SALES, USE ONLY IN CONTEXT OF THE PERU OIL SPILLKeywords:Climate (campaign title)-Day-Disasters-Fishers-Huts-KWCI (GPI)-Local population-Oceans (campaign title)-Oil (fossil fuel)-Oil spills-One person-Outdoors-Pollution-Repsol-Side viewShoot: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.

Fishermen, that are heavily impacted by the incident, see their livelihood threatened. Some volunteer to clean up the Oil from the beaches. The majority of the clean-up crews are mostly local residents without training.
