Burning whaling ship threatens nature of the Antarctic
It is drifting around near penguin breeding grounds.
New Zealand, which is helping to take care of the ship, said this on Wednesday.
The ship, the Nisshin Maru, has 500,000 liter of heavy oil and 800,000 liter of fuel oil aboard and is starting to capsize because of the weight of the firefighters’ water, Minister of the Environment Chris Carter said.
