Cat Island in the wake of the spill

Jun 22, 2010 by

We watch day after day. The images can become overwhelming, but the individual life of each creature is relevant to all of us. Oil spill specialist and conservationist, Professor Rick Steiner, from the University of Alaska, moves along the shoreline of Cat Island in the Gulf of Mexico with a camera crew from Greenpeace. They show and explain to us the impact the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill is wreaking on the birds trying to survive and even on the eggs they have not yet laid.
