Environmental group Greenpeace has been fined almost $7,000 for damaging a coral reef at a World Heritage site in the Philippines.

Their flagship Rainbow Warrior II ran aground at Tubbataha Reef Marine Park, in the Sula Sea, 650km (400 miles) south-east of Manila. Park officials said almost 100 sq m (1,076 sq ft) of reef had been damaged.

Greenpeace says the fault lies with the Philippines government for providing inaccurate maps. (Via Metafilter.)
