A major oil spill in an Israeli nature reserve could take years to clean up, according to ecologists with Israel’s Nature and Parks Authority. About three to five million liters of crude spilled from the Eliat-Askelon pipeline into the Evrona Desert Reserve near the Red Sea earlier this month, flooding 200 acres of desert with oil. According to the Huffington Post , the slick of oil has pooled in ravines, but without heavy rainfall, it’s unlikely it will reach the sea.

However, experts in the country are saying a full cleanup of the spill isn’t likely to come soon.
