Mysterious Oil Spill Contaminates Brazilian Beaches
Brazilian government officials have found a number of mysterious oil spills that have contaminated several beaches in the northeast region of Brazil.
It’s unclear where the oil is coming from and who is behind the spills. President Bolsonaro claims the oil is not a native Brazilian product.
In an effort to clean up the mess, CNN says more than 100 tons of oil sludge have been reclaimed and collected, and federal police officers have started an ongoing investigation to determine the cause behind the spills. Wild animals including birds and turtles have also been affected by the oil pollution and are currently undergoing treatment.
So for now, if you’re seeking an Instagram-worthy Brazilian beach, it might be best to put that on hold.
