Marine Life Shows Signs of Trouble Two Years After BP Spill Began
April 20th marked the two-year anniversary of BP’s Macondo Well explosion, which set off one of the worst oil spills in our nation’s history, causing extensive damage to marine and wildlife habitats, and to the coastal communities which depend upon them.
