    Around 6,000 birds in the Gulf, particularly brown pelicans, have been killed by the BP oil spill. Why? The oil disrupts a bird’s habitat, and also causes direct damage to the bird itself. Birds smothered in oil become impaired in movement and can further harm themselves by ingesting the oil on their feathers. That’s why environmentalists take such great pains to shampoo birds caught in oil slicks. Oil covering the water and harming aquatic life prevents birds from fishing. Oil covering the coasts destroys birds’ habitats. Thus, the oil spill had a huge environmental toll, particularly for birds.
