The Deepwater Horizon oil spill of April 20, 2010, was the largest the US had ever experienced, with over 205 million gallons of crude oil being released into the Gulf of Mexico. The spill has had an effect on a number of species and with your help, Earthwatch will investigate any impacts on the Common Loon, a seabird which commonly breeds in Canada and parts of the northern US.

For 2012, you can help Dr. James Paruk monitor the Louisiana coast for adult loon survivorship and health to better determine impacts from the oil spill on Common Loon breeding populations. For more information visit www.earthwatch.org
