Bangladesh Bangladesh - Oil spill in the Sundarbans
  • An oil tanker sunk in the Sheela River near the Sundarbans, following collision with a cargo vessel on 9 December; the impact is being assessed. The tanker was carrying 380 000 litres of furnace oil, half of which has spilled over a stretch of 60 km of the river and 20 connecting canals. A total of 25 000 litres of oil have meanwhile been collected by nearby communities.
  • For the time being, only the edge vegetation (smaller plants, ferns and grasses) are coated with spill oil. Due to low tide, the oil spill has not reached the forest floor of the Sundarbans. Experts expect that the oil coating of the edge vegetation along the Sheela River will be washed out naturally within four to five weeks, though it may persist due to the winter season.
  • Aid agencies are closely monitoring the situation in order to further assess the impact on the livelihood of the affected population.
