Oil giants BP and Total are planning to drill for oil near the Amazon Reef, risking a spill that could not only devastate the corals and sponges, but have a huge impact on people and animals in the region.
Hidden near the mouth of the Amazon River is an underwater world so unique, it’s astonished scientists. Home to pink corals, sunset-coloured fish and over 60 species of sea sponge, the Amazon Reef is a thriving ecosystem that we’ve barely explored.
Total and BP want to start exploratory oil drilling in the area of the reef. One of the blocks of oil owned by Total is just eight kilometers away, making drilling there extremely dangerous for the reef and the people and wildlife who depend on it.
