Encallamiento de Embarcación Abril de 2006

¿Que pasó?
El 27 de abril de 2006, el petrolero T/V Margara encalló en un arrecife de coral poco profundo cerca de la Bahía de Tallaboa en Puerto Rico. La embarcación se retiró exitosamente del lugar al día siguiente sin fugas de aceite en el agua. Sin embargo, los esfuerzos de respuesta y la remoción del buque causaron daños adicionales significativos al arrecife.

La restauración de emergencia se llevó a cabo en el lugar entre 2006 y 2008. Estas acciones salvaron aproximadamente 10,500 corales y cumplieron con algunas de las restauraciones necesarias en el lugar.

¿Cuáles fueron los impactos?
El encallamiento y las actividades de respuesta subsiguientes resultaron en lesiones significativas al frágil ecosistema de los arrecifes. Las estimaciones preliminares indican que aproximadamente dos acres de arrecife fueron afectados. Varias especies de coral fueron impactadas, incluyendo seis listadas como amenazadas bajo la Ley de Especies en Peligro.

What Happened?
On April 27, 2006, the oil tanker T/V Margara ran aground on a shallow coral reef close to the Bahia de Tallaboa in Puerto Rico. The vessel was successfully removed from the site the following day without leaking oil into the water. However, response efforts and removal of the ship caused significant additional injury to the reef.

Emergency restoration was conducted at the site between 2006 and 2008. These actions saved approximately 10,500 corals and addressed some of the restoration needed at the site.

What Were the Impacts?
The grounding and subsequent response activities resulted in significant injury to the fragile reef ecosystem. Preliminary estimates indicate that approximately two acres of reef were affected. Several species of coral were impacted, including six listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act.
