On May 20 2021, the X-Press Pearl caught fire about 9 nautical miles off the coast of Sri Lanka. Aboard the ship were at least 81 containers of dangerous goods, including 25 tons of nitric acid, 78 tons of “nurdles” (raw material used to make plastics) and 350 tons of shipping fuel oil.
Since the maritime disaster, wild sea life has been washing ashore and showed the true ramifications of the event. Sea turtles, dolphins, whales and fish arrive on beaches with nurdles lodged deep in their gills and mouths.
In collaboration with Parley, AquaGoat donated $1000 USD to their emergency relief fund to provide aid in what is arguably the worst maritime disaster in Sri Lankan history.
