MV Wakashio stranded on the reef in southeastern Mauritius 

On July 25, 2020 around 10 p.m., the Panamanian-flagged Japanese bulk carrier MV Wakashio ran aground in the southeastern reef of Mauritius.

There was an oil spill with about 1000 tons of fuel spilled into the lagoon of this part of the island. Mauritians have organized to reduce the impact of this oil spill and more than 800 people have been recovered before it reaches the coasts.

Hugues Vitry, Director of the Blue Water Diving Centre is also Vice President of the Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), Marine Megafauna Conservation Organisation (MMCO). He was asked as a whales' expert to help authorities identify a site where the 263-metre-long Wakashio front could be submerged without consequence for whales and other large cetaceans. A site, close to the major sea routes, at a depth of 3,180 meters was chosen for scuttling. The operation, which began on Wednesday 19 August afternoon, ended on Monday 24 August 2020 at around 3.30pm. 

The expertise of MMCO and Hugues Vitry concerns only the choice of site outside the whale zone. Hughes accompanied by MMCO biologist Svetlana Barteneva represented civil society and NGOs. They oversaw the scuttling and benefited from the assistance of the National Coast Guards to fly over the site and verify and authenticate the GPS points.

See interview with Hugues Vitry about Wakashio on the website https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZVMUbVSKCiTbhhawerHQrrwxkHtMcvZO/view?usp=sharing

The Blue Water Divers team was divided into two parts.

A team helps to make floating barriers to prevent progression and for the collection of fuel oil.


The other on the ground to contain and recover the oil from the coast
