Subsequent History:

On January 28, 1989 the Argentine Polar Transporter BAHÍA PARAÍSO ran aground near Janus and DeLaca islands less than two miles from Palmer Station. The ship was en route to resupply the Argentine stations in the vicinity and had called on Palmer Station to allow the tourists on board an opportunity to visit. Although no passengers or crew members were injured as a result of the accident, diesel fuel and other petroleum products (Estimated at 600,000 liters spilled) began leaking from the hull. This presented a great threat to the environment and on-going research in the area.
