Gulf Coast Animals and Telivision cameras.

I came back from a conference to news of the oil spill…it continues.

First of all talk about insanity…the congressman from this region says because this area also has a lot of oil economy we should continue to produce oil in the gulf…he says this as the next photo of is of an oil slimed Magnificent Frigate Bird. We act like addicts.

The National press has their choice of oil slimed pelicans (brown), slimed gulls and an assortment of other bird species swimming or floundering in oil sludge.

There are photos of loggerhead sea turtes oil slimed.

Some individual animals will actually survive this sludge but the longterm impacts of ingesting a lot of oil are probably a slow death that will occur out of sight of the telivision cameras.
