Endangered Penguins Caught in Oil Spill
On March 16, 2011, the MV Oliva, a freighter carrying soybeans from Brazil to Singapore, ran aground at Nightingale Island in the South Atlantic Ocean. Fuel from the ship spilled into the water and onto the shore, and the local population of endangered northern rockhopper penguins came in contact with the oil. National Geographic Expeditions' contributor Andrew Evans arrived March 23rd, and filmed what he saw.
