What are some long term affects of the BP oil spill?

      The research will have to be on-going. “Marine mammals may be affected by (1) the oil, its metabolites, or dispersants through direct contact, ingestion or inhalation; (2) injury and disturbance from response activities; and (3) short and long term ecological changes resulting from the spill and response efforts”. There are 25 different types of dolphins and whales in the Gulf of Mexico. The direct effect is when they come in contact with the oil and the indirect effect would be the degradation of habitat and a reduction in their food source.
