The media has long since stopped covering the biggest oil spill in U.S. history, but the aftermath of the devastating Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion is still taking a toll on wildlife four years later. The disaster spilled more than 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.  A new report, dismissed by BP as political advocacy and not science, says a record number of bottlenose dolphins and sea turtles are dying as a result of the disaster. The report, issued by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), “misrepresents the U.S. government’s investigation into dolphin deaths,” BP told National Geographic, “as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s own Web site states, that inquiry is ongoing.” “The report also conveniently overlooks information available from other independent scientific reports showing that the Gulf is undergoing a strong recovery. Just this week, a study published by Auburn University researchers found no evidence that the spill impacted young red snapper populations on reefs off the Alabama coast.” More
