BP Oil Spill Dead Animals

Yesterday’s count on BP Oil Spill: Daily Dead Wildlife Tally (also available @bpdeadbirds), pictured above, translates official reports into a devastatingly simple web graphic of the animals found dead, rescued, cleaned and released from the BP disaster in the Gulf. As you can see, or may have inferred from the latest Big Picture photo series, the numbers are bad, and probably represent only a small fraction of the actual death toll, which might soon include relief workers as Gulf temperatures continue to rise.
