Latest NOAA study ties Deepwater Horizon oil spill to the spike in Gulf dolphin deaths. Studies completed by independent and government scientists have found signs of illness associated with exposure to petroleum products, particularly in the form of rare lesions on their lungs and adrenal glands, in many of these bottlenose dolphin deaths. As stated on NOAA’s Office of Response and Restoration website, “The timing, location, and nature of the lesions support that oil compounds from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill caused these lesions and contributed to the high numbers of dolphin deaths within this oil spill’s footprint.” For more on this see NOAA’s statement and the peer reviewed study in PLOS ONE.

 

The Deepwater Horizon oil spill Natural Resource Damage Assessment Trustees are accepting public comment through June 19 on the Draft Phase IV Early Restoration Plan and Environmental Assessments.
