Australia | Cruise ship dumps 27,000l of food waste in Great Barrier Reef Marine Park

CANBERRA, Oct. 23 (Xinhua) -- A cruise ship dumped 27,000 liters of food waste and grey water into the Great Barrier Reef in August, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) has found.


Senator Larissa Waters told a Senate hearing on Monday night that she had seen a copy of the as yet unpublished AMSA report on the incident, which said that the Pacific Explorer, a vessel operated by P&O Cruises Australia, dumped the waste on Aug. 26.
