Zdaniem ornitologów przypadki zabrudzenia ropą takiej liczby ptaków nie było
na wybrzeżu gdańskim od kilku lat.

Ptaki nad Zatoką Gdańską giną zabrudzone ropą

Zdarza się, że załogi tankowców po cichu spuszczają slopy do morza. Na
zachodnim Bałtyku by to nie przeszło, zaraz by ich złapali. Ale w Zatoce
Gdańskiej czasem się udaje. Plamy tych substancji są
od lat zmorą bywalców plaż Mierzei Wiślanej, szczególnie w okolicy Piasków,
gdzie cyrkulacja wody nanosi je z okolic pobliskiego
Bałtijska i innych portów naftowych w rejonie Kaliningradu. Na dnie zbiorników
tankowców pozostają najcięższe frakcje naftowe,
które w temperaturze otoczenia są gęste i lepkie, dlatego są takie
niebezpieczne dla ptaków. W tym konkretnym wypadku substancja
ropopochodna raczej nie pochodziła z portów rosyjskich, za daleko.
Prawdopodobnie pozbył się jej któryś ze statków zawijających
do jednego z terminali w Trójmieście.

    • yaponczyk1 CANADA- oil dumping season 02.03.07, 17:03
      Dead oiled seabirds washing ashore



      (Placentia Bay, NF) - The International Fund for Animal Welfare announced the
      deliberate oil dumping season open, after dead oiled birds washed up on the
      shores of Newfoundland this week. Deliberate oil dumping causes the deaths of
      an estimated 300,000 seabirds each year off the coast of Newfoundland - the
      same number of birds that died in the Exxon Valdez oil spill.










      "The shipping industry is well aware that Canada's fines for illegal dumping
      are unreasonably low and that the chances are being caught are even lower,"
      IFAW campaigner Kim Elmslie said. "Even though legally pumping out bilge is
      fairly cheap, unscrupulous captains have found dumping it is more convenient."

      The highest fine to date in Canada is $125,000 – substantially lower than fines
      dealt for similar cases in the U.S. or U.K, which have handed out fines of
      $509,000 US and $411,000 US respectively.

      An incident report from Environment Canada revealed that to date, 11 birds have
      been found along a small patch of the southern coastline of Newfoundland
      between Point Lance and Point Verde, with two to three birds found on each
      beach. Experts say most oiled bird corpses do not even make it to shore. If
      they do, many are scavenged or decay before they are found.

      IFAW is working with chronic oil pollution experts and government officials to
      lobby for higher fines and enhanced surveillance.

      “To send the message that Canada is intolerant of polluters, the government
      needs to provide more frequent surveillance flights that will help catch ships
      illegally dumping their toxic waste,” Elmslie said. “Also, the courts need to
      aggressively prosecute polluters and deal higher fines. Fines should go to the
      Environmental Damages Fund, which funds restoration projects. “

      The deliberate oil dumping season has officially been documented for over 30
      years by Environment Canada, with marine birds such as puffins, dovekies, and
      murres found live and dead with oil on their feathers from deliberate oil
      spills in Canadian waters. In the cold waters of the Northwest Atlantic, a
      spot of oil the size of a quarter is enough to kill a seabird.

      Higher fines are important, but are not always a deterrent. According to
      documents obtained through Access to Information, fines paid for illegally
      dumping oil are tax deductible.

          Crews worked furiously through the weekend to contain an oil spill off the B.C.
          coast, as winds swept the oil farther along bird-populated waterways.

          By Sunday, officials reported that crews had cleaned up two-thirds of the oil.

          More than 29,000 litres of heavy bunker oil spilled into the water near Howe
          Sound, north of Vancouver, when a cargo ship's fuel tank was punctured on
          Friday. The Norwegian company that owns the ship is paying for the cleanup
          effort, which has already reached more than $100,000.

          Winds and currents pushed the oil 500 metres into the sound and farther into
          the Squamish estuary. About 60 birds, mainly Canada geese, were drenched in
          oil.

          Brian Clark of the B.C. Environment Ministry said the marsh's tall grass helped
          block the oil.

          The estuary will be closed to the public for another few weeks and is expected
          to be fully restored by the fall.
