A VOLUNTEER RESCUES AN OIL-SOAKED BIRD ON BEACH IN NORTHERN SPAIN.
A volunteer takes an oil-soaked bird from the beach at Nemina, in
northern Spain after a new slick of fuel oil arrived here November 22,
2002. The 26-year-old Bahamas-flagged vessel Prestige took some 70,000
tons of viscous fuel oil to the bottom of the Atlantic when it finally
broke up on November 19, priming an ecological time-bomb for the scenic
shores of Galicia. Hundreds of kilometres of rugged coastline have been
fouled by the stricken Prestige's cargo, destroying wildlife and
wrecking the area's renowned fisheries and shellfish industry.
