The latest photo taken by members of the Tubbataha Management Office team on board a US Navy P3 Orion shows the vessel Apollo siphoning oil from the USS Guardian off the northwestern tip of the South Atoll in Tubbataha Reef. As calmer seas prevail, salvage teams are attempting to complete de-fueling on Friday. A team of Filipino scientists, assembled by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, will conduct a preliminary rapid assessment of reef damage. Lory Tan/WWF/TMO
