Disturbing Video of Oil Spill Effects on Whales and Dolphins


This video contains some of the most compelling and disturbing footage I’ve seen of the Gulf oil spill.  It demonstrates the vastness of the spread of oil; the effects on marine mammals including whales and dolphins; and the magnitude of the burning BP is doing to try to clean up the oil.  The video is long but worth the slog; the footage of whales and dolphins begins around 6:55 if you don’t have the patience for all 9+ minutes.  But I’d recommend watching all of it just to get a sense for how massive this spill really is.
