Concern Over Oil Leak from Capsized Costa Concordia

By Frontiergap @FrontierGap


The Costa Concordia capsized on Friday 13th January after hitting a rock off the coast of Isola del Giglio, Tuscany, near the Tuscan Archipelago National Park, the largest marine sanctuary in the Mediterranean. The marine park is an area of great importance due to its rich species diversity: here can be found a sea bed covered with a wide variety of corals, sea fans and sea grass which create an important habitat to a range of plants and other animals. The protected area is also home to many sharks and cetaceans, including a stable population of bottlenose dolphins, and other cetaceans such as sperm whales, striped, Risso's and common dolphins, as well as lesser-known species of great ecological interest, such as the Aplysinia cavernicola sponge.
