虽然漏油事件的抢救工作已经告一段落,但是其遗留下来的祸害却是巨大无比的,首当其冲的就是野生动物,包括海鸟和海龟。最新的报告披露,已有将近3000只海鸟在这次的漏油事件里被这些黑油杀害了。

漏油事件受害者之一

What had happened?
3,000 Birds Now Killed or Covered by Oil in the Gulf

Where?
Mexico Gulf

What is it so special?
With the tentatively good news breaking that the oil flow has been halted — according to BP at least — it may be time to return the focus to the devastation the spill has wrought. A good place as any to start is with the wildlife. The birds and sea turtles that have fallen victim to the oil slick are among the most public faces of the BP spill’s destruction. And recent numbers have revealed that at least 3,000 birds have been covered or killed by the crude.

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

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。

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.
