PRESTIGE OIL SPILL CLEAN UP

Prestige oil spill clean up 1-8 March 2003, Galicia, Spain. The Prestige was an oil tanker whose sinking in 2002 off the Galician coast caused a large oil spill. The spill polluted thousands of kilometers of coastline and more than one thousand beaches on the Spanish and French coast, as well as causing great damage to the local fishing industry. Thousands of volunteers from Spain and Europe came to Galicia to help clean up the oil spill on the beaches of Galicia. I visited Galicia for one week with a group of 50 volunteers organised by people from Spain, who worked in Brussels. One tip I learned, Olive oil is excellent for removing oil from your skin.
