Oil Spill in The Gulf

The Tragedy

The oil spill in the Gulf Of Mexico was said to be the worst oil spill in U.S. history. 200 million gallons of toxic fuel/oil leaked into the Gulf due to an explosion of a fuel pipe. Not just the Gulf that was effected, but over 2 million species got harmed by the fuel and it soon led to death for almost half of those species. Also, the oil moved towards different countries. Most beaches got closed due to amount of toxic oil on the shore.

Too much, too late.
