地球的一秒钟 (One Second of Our Earth)(06-05-10)

至今依然每天漏出大量的原油至海面。。

发生了什么事?
漏油范围扩大威胁656种动物‧蠵龟海牛和褐鵜鶘堪忧

地球哪一端?
美国墨西哥湾

有啥特别?
路易斯纳州野生动物和渔业部表示,钻井平台漏出的油污威胁了当地大约445个鱼种、134种鸟类、45种哺乳动物以及32种爬行动物和两棲动物。

据称,在飞禽类当中,褐鵜鶘的处境堪忧。生物学家洛弗表示,这个对此州具有象徵意义的鸟类通常在沿海地区下蛋,很可能从那些受原油污染的鱼只身上摄食。 除此之外,珩鸟、燕鸥和鷸也面临相同的威胁。

油台倒塌的受害者之一

What had happened?
Spill is near endangered species, fisheries

Where?
Gulf of Mexico

What is it so special?
The growing oil spill in waters near Louisiana is a threat to an astonishing range of life, from endangered sperm whales and sea turtles to migratory birds and prized shrimp and oysters.

With an estimated rate of 210,000 gallons per day of oil leaking from the damaged site we can only imagine the horrorific effects this will have on wildlife.   The spill threatens 445 species of fish, 45 species of mammals, 32 species of amphibians and reptiles, and 134 species of birds.
