Rena oil spill!

Hey Monkeys!

EcoMom suggested that I write something on Go Bananas about an oil spill here in New Zealand that has made it hard for the people that live on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island.

A ship called “Rena” is stuck on the Astrolabe reef. The ship hit the Astrolabe reef at 17 knots which is 30 kilometres/hour!

These are some of the latest pictures of Rena.

It is hurting the birdlife, too!

This is a terrible event for our environment and the animals and people who live here. I hope it never happens again!

What do you think about the oil spill?
