Huffington Post has compiled a slideshow of photos depicting the various coastline animals affected by the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Helpless seabirds, pelicans, fish, dolphins, turtles, and sharks are washing up on shore, either dead or close to it thanks to the deeply contaminated waters.

So far, the coasts of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama have been the most affected, and wildlife rescuers are working feverishly to try and help save as many animals as they can.

Procter & Gamble Co. has helped by rushing over 1,000 bottles of Dawn dishwashing liquid to the Gulf, which rescuers have been using to clean off the oil-soaked wildlife. Dawn is chronicling how many animals they’ve been able to save on their Facebook page.

These three photos were taken just yesterday at East Grand Terre Island in Lousiana. Needless to say, everyone is concerned about the wellbeing of these animals, and whether or not the oil will spread to more areas. Here are some resources for how you can help. (Huffington Post)

  1. poor animals. obama did nothing for a month now he is making like he is the savior again, what a looser. the only thing we can do is keep cleaning, get the relief well drilled, and be sure the new technology is in place and ready for the next time it may happen (G-d forbid).

  2. Throw the oil moguls into the oil then the birds won’t have to suffer anymore.

    Can we please stop using oil now? Can we please switch to clean energy?

    Is this not proof enough that using oil is stupid and deadly. It’s causing disease. These birds and life did not evolve with oil on the surface or in oceans of oil.

    Can this stupidity stop already?
