If you’re as concerned about the Deepwater Horizon oil spill’s effects on wildlife as I am, you’ll be interested in this video. It shows how help is being given — to one bird at a time.
The video comes from the U.S Fish & Wildlife, and shows Jay Holcomb, Executive Director of the International Bird Rescue Research Center (IBRRC), explaining what happens when a bird is oiled. He then demonstrates how an oiled victim from the Gulf spill is washed at the Fort Jackson Rehabilitation Center in Louisiana.
