How does oil impact marine life?

alisha mccann's insight:

I could not find any other articles online in the Madison College Database, they were all books so I had to re-route to google through the library website. This article talks about the disastrous effects oil spills have on the marine life. It goes into detail about mammals with feather and fur in particular and what the oil does to them and how it keeps them from staying warm, and cause hypothermia. Who would have thought an oil spill can cause hypothermia in some mammals?
