It’s painful to hear, but another oil leak has been reported … this time in Venezuela.
Venezuela’s state-owned oil company, PDVSA, confirmed that it has leaked crude oil into the Caribbean Sea. The leak came from an oil line and gas pipeline and was discovered during an aerial inspection off the Golfete de Coro area.

The leak’s impact extends about 12 and a half miles in the Gulf of Venezuela.
Fishermen and experts have been sounding the alarm about oil problems in the Golfete area which is known for its beautiful beaches and nature preserves.
This incident comes a month after another spill that covered parts of Morrocoy National Park.
Sadly, representatives aren’t transparent in both cases and nobody is taking responsibility.
It’s important that we work together to stop these spills from happening over and over again. Marine ecosystems are being destroyed because of carelessness. At Karmagawa and SaveTheReef, we’re going to continue calling it out so that more people are aware. It’s important for these companies, including PDVSA, to be held accountable so that real change can happen.
