This week, November 2007, a massive storm swept into the Black Sea, sinking dozens of ships and breaking apart a Russian oil tanker. Over 1,890,000 litres of thick fuel oil was spilled and initial reports suggest some 30,000 birds may have been killed. Thousands
more are covered in oil and face death in the coming weeks.
Over 50 kilometres of Russian coastline are impacted by this oil spill, including critical habitat for migrating and wintering birds.
