Oil Spills have a devastating effect on our oceans that can last years or even decades. Wildlife and the ecosystems they are a part of suffer tragically under the toxic burden of these human-caused accidents. The problem is a global one that increasingly threatens already fragile ecosystems. For example, on November 7, 2007 the cargo freighter Cosco Busan struck the Bay Bridge in San Francisco Bay, California, tearing a 90-foot-long gash in its hull and spilling 58,000 gallons of fuel into the bay. Three days later, a storm wrecked several ships in the Kerch Strait between the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov, including a tanker that spilled more than a half million gallons of oil. This gallery houses Images that highlight the devastation, cleanup and rehabilitation of wildlife affected by oil spills including the Black Sea Oil Spill, San Francisco Bay Oil Spill, South Korean Oil Spill and others.
