Emergency protocols activated in the Galapagos Islands after fuel spill_50.1

Ecuador has activated the emergency protocols in the Galapagos Islands. The emergency protocol was activated to contain the environmental impact of a fuel spill in the Galapagos Islands. The step was taken after a barge carrying 600 gallons of diesel fuel sank. The accident occurred in a port on San Cristobal Island when a crane collapsed while loading a container onto the barge. The falling container destabilized the ship, causing it to sink.

The Galapagos archipelago is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to one of the most fragile ecosystems on the planet.
