Repercussions of the Gulf Oil Spill


Beaches near the Gulf, such as those on the Grand Isle, are now off limits because of the oil contamination. Tourists and residents alike watch their tropical paradise being turned into a toxic whirlpool.

The ecosystem maintains a very delicate balance. When the balance is interrupted, as in the case of the oil spill, fish, oysters, birds, and other wildlife suffer. For the residents of the Grand Isle, the spill has negatively affected their tourist, fishing, and oil industry.
