The consequences of Kamachtka’s ecological disaster could end up being worse than is currently understood. With 95 percent of seabed life dead, many more will animals will perish due to the disruption of the food chain. According to Greenpeace, the environmental change even threatens the local population of rare birds, including the Steller’s sea eagle, which is on the red list of threatened species.
“These birds feed mainly on large fish, so ocean pollution can lead to their death, or make them leave their nests,” said Greenpeace. “The loss of Steller’s sea eagle will affect the universal value of the UNESCO site.”
