Wildlife in Mexico still suffering because of oil spill

April 9th, 2014

Hi guys,

do you remember the oil spill in Gulf of Mexico that happened six years ago? Probably yes. Unfortunately, wildlife there remember it as well.

The BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico caused dangerous after-effects to more than a dozen different animals from dolphins to oysters.

“The oil is not gone. There is oil on the bottom of the gulf, oil washing up on the beach and there is oil in the marshes” Doug Inkley, senior scientist for National Widlife Federation, told a conference call.

At the top of the food chain, more than 900 bottlenose dolphins have been found dead or stranded in the oil spill area since April 2010, when the BP well exploded. Last year, dolphins were still stranding at more than three times the average annual rates before the spill.

NWF scientists said it could take years before the full effects of the oil spill on marine life were understood.
