Impact of the Gulf Spill…

– – That the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is catastrophic is readily apparent although it presently cannot be predicted how long it will continue or just how devastating it will prove to be.  Compounding the disaster is the fact that numerous species come to the fragile ecosystems of the Gulf to feed, nest, breed, and spawn with peak migration and breeding times coming from late April through mid-May; the timing of the disaster accordingly could not be worse.

The animals most threatened by this environmental nightmare include brown pelicans, sea turtles, dolphins, shore birds, shellfish and crabs, and North  Atlantic Bluefin Tuna.
