There's been something noticeably absent from the media coverage of the oil spill. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has tallied hundreds of dead birds, sea turtles, and dolphins drenched with oil. But where are the photos?
The reason you're not seeing many is because BP doesn't want you to.
They've barred workers from sharing photos of oiled wildlife and, according to locals, have been whisking away dead and injured wildlife to buildings and offshore ships.
Why does this matter?
The American public needs to see the tragic reality of the impact our addiction to oil has on our wildlife, our environment, and our future. Because ultimately BP is not the only one responsible for this catastrophe; we all are.
