Marine disaster looms for Namuga
Quoting an extract from the Solomon Star newspaper – 19 June 2019
“The marine ecological system in Star Harbour will be highly polluted and destroyed if nothing is done to remove the sunken MV Takana from Namuga in East Makira.
“The sunken ship still has oil and other leaking chemical substances that will do greater harm to the mangroves, environment and the whole marine ecosystem.
“The ballast water, if it is still present in the ship, will pose a real threat to Namuga and Star Harbour marine ecosystem,” an environmentalist told the Star newspaper.
“Meanwhile, it was confirmed that a team was sent to Namuga last week to assess the situation.”
