      20 March 14h30 SAST: Oiled penguins have now been reported from nearby Inaccessible Island, a nature reserve, a Ramsar Wetland of International Importance and with Tristan's Gough Island, a World Heritage Site. The island's surrounding territorial waters (out to 12 nautical miles) are included in these two international designations. Hundreds of oiled penguins have now been seen on Nightingale.

      Planning for the second vessel with an experienced oil-cleaning team aboard is proceeding apace in Cape Town by way of emergency meetings being held over the long weekend. News of this activity will be posted soon.
