BP oil spill012.jpg
Queen Bess Island, a rookery for brown pelicans, Louisiana's State bird,and other migratory birds is contaminated with oil that is on booth sides of boom put around the island to protect it. National wildlife and fishery agents have rescued many birds off the island that are drenched in oil since june 3rd, 2010. In some areas the booms are full of oil and need to be replaced to be effective. Despite rhetoric from BP that everything that can be done is being done in the clean-up the visible lack of clean-up crews around Queen Bess Island says otherwise.
