I'm learning more about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill right now, and in particular what I'm wondering about is: How are the animals being affected by the oil spill? I was researching this question online, and this article "Concerns Up and Down the Food Chain" because I thought it would tell me about the wildlife being harmed.
"But biologists are increasingly alarmed for wildlife offshore, where the damage from a spill can be invisible but still deadly. And they caution that because of the fluidity between onshore and offshore marine communities, the harm taking place deep at sea will come back to haunt the shallows, whether or not they are directly hit by the slick."
The quote I chose here is basically saying that many wildlife even offshore are being endangered. I think they're taking some actions to save the animals. This food chain affects our food and wildlife.
I think this is interesting because I think they should take action in saving the animals as quickly as possible. However, I think alot of the fish species will be affected negatively. It makes me wonder if the spill will leaving a long lasting effect and endanger the offspring of the fishs.
