Oil Spill Impacts on Wildlife

Turtles- Cumulative Spill Impacts Video
This video shows the cumulative impact of the oil spill on turtle populations.
Client:   National Wildlife Federation

The 2010 Gulf Oil Spill had a huge impact on wildlife in the region, going far beyond the time of the active spill. The National Wildlife Federation asked GreenInfo to develop a high-impact video of this sequence of events.

GreenInfo worked with the National Wildlife Federation to illustrate the impacts of the Gulf oil spill on wildlife. We created a three part animation series that visually reconstructs the oil spill and the growing number of animals found dead and injured since the spill began. Six months after the spill, more than 8,000 birds, sea turtles, and marine mammals were found injured or dead along the Gulf. For more, head over Animal Planet's Blog to watch a narrated version of the project.
