One year ago, an oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico - endangering wildlife and ecosystems. Staff here at the Museum mobilized on the Museum floor and online to help visitors make sense of this event and its possible effects. Here are a few of these resources:
- EXPLORE: The Ocean Portal's Gulf Oil Spill section
- WATCH: Video interview with Dr. Chris Mah - Oil's Impact on Marine Invertebrates
- DOWNLOAD: Multi-layer, Google Earth-based overview of Deepwater Horizon incident from April 21 to August 5, 2010 and NMNH-IZ's Gulf of Mexico invertebrate holdings by BOEMRE study program
- DISCOVER: NMNH's invertebrate collections from the Gulf of Mexico
Left wondering where things stand today? Tune into tonight's webcasted panel discussion (click the flyer to the right for more information). If you can't watch tonight, keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages for a link to the archived video.
