Oil Induced Engine Failure: Deepwater Horizon
These gears represent the seven categories of species affected by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The spill area contains 8,332 species. These include:
4 sea turtles
29 marine mammals
When one gear is not functioning properly, the entire machine is broken. We must keep this in mind as we continue to allow oil companies to profit over the destruction of our environment.
