Wildlife apocalypse along the Gulf of Mexico coast is fast becoming a reality. Pelicans are becoming trapped by the oil and dead birds and dolphins have been washing ashore, coated in the sludge. Government officials estimate that roughly 83 to 182 million litres of oil have leaked into the Gulf since the April 20, 2010 explosion.

Scientists are finding enormous oil plumes in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico, including one as large as 10 miles long, 3 miles wide and 300 feet thick in spots. The discovery is fresh evidence that the leak from the broken undersea well could be substantially worse than estimates that the government and BP have given.
