Greenpeace to Pay Fine For Damaging Coral Reef

rbowwarrior.jpg The environmental protection organization, Greenpeace, will pay $7,000 for damages to a coral reef when its ship Rainbow Warrior II struck the reef in the southern Phillippines.

The accident Monday was “very regrettable,” Greenpeace said in a joint statement with the Tubbataha National Marine Park, but it laid some of the blame on maritime charts showing its ship was 1.5 miles from the reef

The ship sustained no damage and continues its voyage to Australia, China, and Thailand.
