Oil from Deepwater Horizon spill still causing damage in gulf 2 years later, scientists find

Oil from Deepwater Horizon spill still causing damage in gulf 2 years later, scientists find | Survey of Oceanography Final Project | Scoop.it
On Florida's Panhandle beaches, where local officials once fretted over how much oil washed in with each new tide, everything seems normal. The tourists have returned. The children have gone back to splashing in the surf and hunting for shells.

Large-Scale Impacts of Oil Spills

Click here to edit the title

Ashley Pike's insight:

This article provided information about the many ways oil spills affect shorebirds, all leading up to decreasing the population. Although primarily focusing on the shorebirds affected by the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico 2011, it also provided specific examples related to different oil spills that have occurred. The article went further than the marine ecosystem to explain how other ecosystems could be affected by the oil spill due to migratory birds being exposed to the oil.
