A Japanese disaster relief team sent to Mauritius to help with clean up after an oil spill, has said it will focus on mangroves, beaches and wetlands, according to the Reuters news agency. Deputy team leader Keiji Takechi is quoted by the agency as saying that “As most of the spilled oil at sea has been collected, we are moving into a next stage, with the focus on cleaning up the seaside and minimising the environmental impact”. Japan sent a relief team of six experts last week and another team will be dispatched on Wednesday. It all comes as Japanese bulk carrier MV Wakashio ran aground in July spilling about 1,000 tonnes of oil.
