“The overall spill is made up of several slicks, two to three kilometers wide along a total extension of approximately forty kilometers,” reported the local newspaper El Chubut.

According to local media reports, several corporations are suspected of causing the spill.
 
Locally, IFAW is working with The Fundación Patagonia Natural (FPN) on site. Currently the center is caring for 430 birds.
