Victory for biodiversity as oil company gets fined over Erika oil spill
On 16 January, the French oil company Total and the Italian shipping classification society RINA were fined by a Parisian court over their involvement in the huge oil spill that resulted from the sinking of the tanker Erika off the coast of France. The Erika was a 24 year old rusting, Maltese-registered vessel that broke in two during a storm in 1999. The ship leaked 20,000 tonnes of oil in the sea and affected up to 400 km of the Brittany coast.
The oil disaster affected about 150,000 birds and killed 72,000 of them, mainly Common Guillemots Uria aalge, Atlantic Puffins Fratercula arctica, Northern Gannets Morus bassanus and Black-legged Kittiwakes Rissa tridactyla.
