Exxon Valdez Oil Spill

| No TrackBacks

Exxon ValdezTwenty-two years ago today the Exxon Valdez oil tanker struck the Bligh Reef and dumped 11 million gallons of oil into Alaska's Prince William Sound. The spill damaged more than 1,300 miles of shoreline, killed hundreds of thousands of birds and marine animals and devastated the livelihoods of people in the area. Oil from the Exxon Valdez still affects wildlife today and there have been numerous long-term economic effects to the region.

To find out more about the Exxon Valdez oil spill the Milwaukee Public Library offers Internet resources and books. Additionally, new resources have been added to our collection about the more recent BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
