SO SAD ...

Last time we were in Tulum, in Mexico's Yucatan,
my son found a couple of sea turtles one morning.

Each of them had patches of gooey oil on them,
remnants of the Bay of Campeche spill
that had occured a couple of years before.

One of them had her entire face covered with it.
All were dead but one that we were able to save ...

Cause of death: suffocation by the skin...

The BIG oil spill happening right now in the Golf of Mexico
worries me and makes me feel extremely sad.

Sad for the people who died during the accident and

sooooooooo

worried for all species that will have to fight for their life
in the coming hours, days, weeks, years ...

Makes me cry ...

Oil and the exploration for it is such a mixed blessing. Good for those that work it; bad for all the species of nature that are in the path of it.
I feel with you.....too much into our mother gulfs and oceans....

XXOO!!

The first thing that comes up in my mind after these horrible oil spill is the ocean life. I was reading that this is going to change the entire ecosystem...well dah!!! Poor little turtles. Life for them is very difficult to get it going without adding man's ineptness to impede their ability to mature.

Very sad.

Abrazos,
Georgina

How sad! I just came back from Yucatan. I feel that oil is being drilled with no care for the environment. I hope we get off his addiction for oil and find new environmentally methods of energy sources for every thing!

I know, LuLu, it's hard to look at. I hate it when children or animals suffer. They are so innocent. xox Pam

I totally agree with everyone. It is very tragic for all the families and all the lives that will be affected because of this.

Take care Lulu.

Too sad to speak of, but with God's help better days and "ways" are ahead for all of us wherever we live!

This saddens me, too. I think of the depth and magnitude of destruction this has on our planet, and I cry. Innocent wildlife/plant life with no place to escape. We need to combine our thoughts/prayers toward finding a solution. Apparently BP can't!

I'm sick over it and can't quit thinking about it. I pray they can stop it soon. I don't think they should be allowed to drill in the ocean.

You dont cry alone for all those vulnerable animals which did nothing wrong
