Here's another update on the pelican. He (or she) has that wonderful baleful look, just perfectly summing up its feelings regarding the disaster in the Gulf.
I watched the news this evening and the sight of oil covered birds, water and beaches is quite sickening and still oil gushing out into the ocean. It makes me consider my gyotaku project and how it will become a marker of sorts for species in the future, should the Atlantic become the victim of a similar disaster. I hope that never comes to be. I hope that safeguards are in place and that clean ups can at least begin to repair some of the damage already done before it gets even worse.
Until humans decrease their need for fossil fuels, companies will still mine the earth and incidents like this will happen. You and I are also responsible for the Gulf disaster.
