USA - Deepwater Horizon Disaster - Oil Arrives on Grand Isle
Dead fish coated in oil on the shore of Grand Isle, one of Louisiana's barrier islands that provides natural protection to the marshlands. The oil first hit the beach on May 21, 2010 and has been building up since. BP has been unable to cap the well that has been gushing oil since April 20th, 2010 after an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig. If the oil gets into the bays and marshland protected by the barrier islands, the environment could experience a catastrophic collapse
