Puddles of oil in the forests, polluted lagoons, crabs covered in oil: with photos and videos, activists have been documenting the recurrent pollution in western Gabon. Over three years, they have recorded 10 polluted sites in the Etimboue region, all of them located near oil fields belonging to the Franco-British Perenco company.
Perenco's speciality is operating low-cost, end-of-life oil fields. But according to activists, its infrastructure is dilapidated and is causing serious damage to the environment. The France 24 Observers investigated in this special episode.
