Wildlife Death Toll Climbs In Gulf Oil Spill

Exxon Valdez Pales In Comparison


Bird from Gulf Spill(Animal Radio® Newsroom June 21, 2010)  The wildlife death toll from the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico continues to climb.

As of last week, the International Bird Research Center reported 783 dead birds, 353 dead sea turtles and expects the number to continue to climb.

The Deepwater Horizon explosion may have also killed a sperm whale. NOAA spotted the mammal floating 77 miles south of the spill site.

To put these numbers in perspective after 1989’s Exxon Valdez ran aground off Prince William Sound 250-thousand birds were killed as were 2800 otters. But experts say the gulf spill is more ominous as it spreads.

Current BP numbers indicate the spill is still spewing oil the rate of the Exxon Valdez every 2 and a half days.
