This video from the USA says about itself:
NJNPublicTelevision — 3 June 2010 — Biologists say they are beginning to see positive signs in the effort to bring back a species of migratory shore bird along the Delaware Bay, but the fear is the Gulf oil spill may change things.
Among the principal factors leading up to the April 20 oil rig explosion that is causing untold environmental devastation are the incestuous ties between the oil industry and all sections of the US government: here.
From Pure Florida blog in the USA:
The seabirds will get all the attention on the news, due to the “pretty” factor, but the “uglies” will be devastated also … probably in much worse ways.
Birders should be VERY concerned about horseshoe crabs and the oil spill of course. The eggs of horseshoe crabs and the tiny amphipods that live in great abundance in shoreline wrack (washed up seaweed and seagrasses) are the fuel that powers countless migrating shorebirds.
The oil has the potential to remove both of these things as a food source.
Shore birds may very well be “countless” next year.
