The Russian captain of the X-Press Pearl that caught fire and sank while carrying 25 tons of nitric acid, 275 tons of bunker fuel oil and 50 tons of gas oil, has yet to be charged, but has been barred from leaving the country.  

The remains of 176 sea turtles, 20 dolphins and four whales have washed ashore so far.  

Crews continue to clean up the countless pieces of tiny pieces of plastic, called “nurdles” that were also spilled from the cargo ship.  

Experts fear the event will remain an environmental hazard for decades.
