From Dolphins to Loons, Gulf Species Still Reeling From Deepwater Horizon Disaster

Nearly four years after the BP oil spill killed 11 crewmembers of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig and spewed more than 210 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, several species of wildlife are still fighting to recover.

A new report from the National Wildlife Federation, "Four Years Into the Gulf Oil Disaster: Still Waiting for Restoration," found unusually high death and disease rates among dolphins, turtles, and other marine species in the Gulf.

"Wildlife in the Gulf are still feeling the impacts of the spill," Doug Inkley, senior scientist for the National Wildlife Federation said in a statement accompanying the report. “Bottlenose dolphins in oiled areas are still sick and dying and the evidence is stronger than ever that these deaths are connected to the Deepwater Horizon.
