Pelican's Lament


Remember when having a hook caught in your bill was the biggest concern for a pelican?

I feel like we're all just sinking in this mess.

How about a hook and an oil suit? Insult to injury!

Sandcastle Momma reports tarballs on her beach at Destin. I am so sad - for the innocent animals, the hardworking fishermen and shrimpers, for the families who may not get to go scalloping this sumemr...

This slow-motion disaster is unbearable. I can't look at any of the photos and see all that suffering, knowing I can't do a damned thing to help.

Ditto what Robin Andrea said.

Sandcastle Momma said...

Bless his heart. I wish we could tell them to flee - find somewhere else to live. So sad.

It is a very sad state of affairs that is for sure!

I don't know what to think anymore. How did we let this happen? What can we do to help?

Ava said...

It's all just very sad.

Thank you for not showing that picture of the completely covered pelican. It literally makes me ill. Also am concerned with articles by scientists of what could happen. Trying to read between the lines of no information and conspiracy theories.

Oil spill is really the mess troubling the world over sealife, although limited to united states but literally endangers wide scope

Yeah, the "Drill Here, Drill Now" crap isn't working out that great, is it.

Ouch!

I just heard that they estimate the flow rate at 100 B/day (4MM gal/day)now. SO with this being 63 days now that would make it 252,000,000 gallons of oil released in the gulf!

What happens to the water that this volume displaces?
