“Dolphins Suffering From Lung Disease Due to BP Gulf Oil Spill”

#AceEnvironmentNews says according to "National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration" the bottle-nose dolphins in "Louisiana’s Barataria Bay" have lung damage and adrenal hormone abnormalities not previously seen in other dolphin populations. According to a new peer-reviewed study published today in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.

The Deepwater Horizon spill heavily oiled Barataria Bay. The study was conducted in August 2011 as part of the Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) by a team of government, academic and non-governmental researchers. In the NRDA process, federal and state trustee agencies working cooperatively with BP identify potential injuries to natural resources and lost public uses resulting from the spill, along with restoration projects to ensure that the public is fully compensated for its loss.
