Black tide / by Kennedy Warne

by Warne, K. P.

Edition: Recounts the sequence of decisions and observations taken by the container ship MV 'Rena' prior to her grounding on Astrolabe Reef, and questions why the ship did not have the industry required ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System), a device that uses GPS to mark the position of a vessel on an electronic chart, and shifts its position as the boat moves. Details the work in the wildlife recovery centre, led by veterinarians and bird specialists from Massey University; the beach clean-up crews; and speaks to several Tauranga locals about the environmental disaster in their community. Includes statistics on the environmental cost to our wildlife, sea and coast.Source: New Zealand geographic,Source: New Zealand geographic (Online),Source: New Zealand geographic.Online access: Abridged version of article Black tide Availability: No items available Log in to add tags.
