Devastating BP Oil Spill
The oil spill was a result of many misinterperations and non-functional devices. There are many other things that resulted in the oil spill, such as the non-functional gas alarm. Other mistakes also resulted in the spill.
Thousands of people every day are helping to clean up the spill, help the animals, and treat injured. With the amout of volunteers working to clean up the spill, the damage is becoming smaller, but we will never fully recover from the spill.
The amount of oil being collected by the volunteers is going up and the climate in the gulf is starting to return back to normal.
Animals being affected by the spill
Evidence the oil spill is a problem
3.19 million barrels of oil were leaked onto the gulf, believed to incresed global warming
There is oil on the gulfs floor 5 years after the event occured.
8,000 marine mammals, sea turtles, and other animals have been found dead
Though we will never recover from the effects of the oil spill, we can reduce the damage done every day to keep our marine mammals safe
We can help the biggest oil spill in the U.S. to ever take place, by just volunteering today.
