Efforts will begin on Saturday in Solomon Islands to refloat a wrecked ship at the centre of an environmental disaster.
Since early February, bulk carrier, Solomon Trader, has been wedged on a reef off Rennel Island, where it spilled an estimated 100 tonnes of oil.
The spill happened near a protected marine area and poisoned local water supplies and fishing grounds, sparking an international outcry.
More than 3 months on, the vessel is due to be refloated and towed from the reef.
Loti Yates, the director of the Solomon Islands Disaster Management Office, told Mackenzie Smith it's expected to take around 3 days.
