Oil Spills By: Clare Oil spills affects animals, plants, and humans. Oil spills are when oil ends up in the water and it can affect life all around. I think of all of the things it affects, lets dive in! last year an oil spill happen in the gulf of Mexico and a while ago was the year of not having as much oil in the gulf. We’ll start off with animals, birds and fish are the main thing to die in oil spills. When fish breathe they have a good chance of the oil getting in their gills. Birds try to clean themselves off but, when they lick their wings the oil could poison them. Animals have a good chance of getting hypothermia from the oil getting on the animals skin. Next is plants, when oil spills occur in it, the water is bad which hurts the plants. The oil may seep into the soil, poisoning the plant’s food and soil. Being covered with oil the plants can hurt animals that eat the plant. The animals will eventually die if they are not treated. Lastly humans, we could get affected if we swim in the affected water. Just as simple as drinking water can be affected. Fishermen that are unaware of the oil could get fish that have been affected and sell them to the market. We then buy the fish and eat it unaware of it being affected. See how bad oil spills are? Food, water, animals, plants, and humans could be in danger. You should check on where the fish you get are from. The BIG idea is clean up the beaches and take care of plant Earth because if we don’t we could end up barred under trash. CLEAN UP PEOPLE!!!
