One year after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the fallout continues. The Public Media Exchange, a group of ten Gulf Coast public broadcasting stations, offers local perspectives on post-Deepwater life in the region, reporting on how the oil spill has affected everything from health and economics to tourism and politics.
The group’s “Gulf Watch” website also includes audio and video features on the spill’s environmental impact. This year, more sea turtles and dolphins have been turning up dead on Gulf Coast beaches. Is oil the culprit? Watch this report from Public Media Exchange’s WSRE-TV, out of Escambia County, Fla.
