SPAIN Illa Salvora (Salvora Island) -- 15/12/2002 -- Aerial view of polluted coastline of Salvora Island off the Galician coast. This island is part of the Atlantic Islands National Park. Thousands of tonnes of heavy fuel oil has contaminated large swathes of the north-western coast of Spain after the tanker Prestige sank in late November 2002. The ship was carrying around 57,000 tonnes of fuel oil and while some has been extracted from the wreck, a lot of the oil has leaked into the sea causing a ecological disaster along hundreds of kilometers of southern Europe's Atlantic coast -- Picture ¬© Jon Mitchell / Lightroom Photos
