Guimaras’ marine life threatened anew
MetadataShow full item record
It could very well be déjà vu, but the oil spill from last week’s sinking of cargo vessel M/V Sportivo in Iloilo Strait is now threatening mangroves and marine life in the island province of Guimaras. Engr. Raymund Moderes, executive assistant to Guimaras Governor Samuel Gumarin, said there are reports that the oil spill is starting to kill fish and damage mangroves here. Moderes stressed that people here in Guimaras are taking extra precautionary measure to make sure that what happened to them and the island in 2006 does not happen again.
