Video: “One Year After the Oil Spill”

A powerful new video by The Cornell Lab of Ornithology in Ithaca, New York, shares footage of birds after the oil spill and notes the power of observation and citizen science to advance conservation. You must watch this: http://www.birds.cornell.edu/page.aspx?pid=1855

Cornell’s oil spill website also has a number of other interesting new videos about the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig rupture that ultimately released more than 170 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.

One year after the spill, tar balls of oil are still washing ashore onto Louisiana beaches, even as we speak.  /Gary
