Alarming Images of Oil-Drenched Gulf

Over two years after the BP oil disaster, the environmental group Greenpeace has received more than 300 new images, taken in 2010, of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill showing oil-covered turtles and sperm whales swimming through oil. The images were taken by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Greenpeace had submitted a Freedom of Information Request for images and information related to the BP Gulf of Mexico disaster in 2010. The request finally came through and what was offered was this first batch of files.

The disturbing images, all taken in 2010, show oil-drenched turtles and sperm whales swimming through oil.
